Example text

We observe how he presents himself to a stranger in an unusual situation, his body language, and whether he asks to use the lavatory, requests a glass of water, or even, more unusually, asks to use the telephone. If questionnaires are used as a preliminary requirement, what does this add? It may allow the assessor to avoid some direct questions, but the disadvantage to this could be that it deprives the assessor of hearing the full story in the patient’s own words. Having prior access to information about a patient alters the framework.

Perhaps we are so used to experiencing our patients’ harsh and critical superegos that we find it difficult to hold on to more positive experiences, such as the enjoyment of a close relationship, or satisfaction in work and its rewards. Can he alternate freely between inner and outer reality and recognize the difference? Can he move back and forth in historical time and make connections while relating his history? Above all, is he curious to explore the reasons why he finds himself coming for psychotherapy now?

The transference continues to develop as information is conveyed by the voice and accent of the assessor. Patients can be put off, or made more or less anxious, by the therapist’s manner. For example, an American analyst chose to take a call from someone requesting an assessment during a patient’s session. He was curt with the new referral and succeeded in making both patients feel rejected. We emphasize that a patient should feel that an analyst is as concerned about his welfare on the telephone as he would be in the consulting room.
