MINERBO, Marion  y  BETBEDE, Abigail. Countertransference and transference in a clinical seminar. Rev. bras. psicanál [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.1, pp. 137-146. ISSN 0486-641X.

This paper describes, through a case presented in a clinical seminar, how the analyst makes available his "living psychic material" to give shape and life to the primary object that a melancholic patient summoned in /by transference. From this point of view, countertransference is not only the analyst's emotional reaction but, mainly, the identificatory position from which "someone" in him addresses an aspect of the-child-in-the-patient. Unconscious as such, this position will be captured by analytical listening in the gaps in the narration of the case. A spontaneous exclamation by the analyst, highly charged from an emotional point of view, has been the starting point to get in touch with her narcissistic suffering and ambivalent feelings towards her patient. With the aid of a theoretical-clinical articulation of the notion of the "dead mother", we were able to reconstruct non-symbolized vicissitudes of the relationship between the child-in-the-patient and his primary object. Finally, this trajectory allowed us to propose a way to conduct this analysis.

Palabras clave : transference and countertransference; clinical seminar; theoretical-clinical articulation; melancholia; dead mother.
