«Listening to unconscious communication»

Caroline Polmear writes about her paper:

«Every day, in every session, we sit with our patients listening to their unconscious communication. I would like to think with you about the different ways in which we listen. From where do we draw our information? How do we discover the developmental level at which the patient is speaking? About what and to whom are they speaking? Simple questions of course but not easy to answer. Unconscious communication is just as it says: unconscious. Thus we cannot know it just by listening to the words. We may be listening to a defence against unconscious communication and self-knowledge, splitting off and projection of unconscious material, an identification with the analyst’s voice rather than an authentic communication, a way the patient feels he has to relate to his object in order to be loved by her, and so on.»
