Sample text

The mother’s experience is one of efficacy in her ministrations and the recognition of the particularities of her baby at that time. She is apt to express this as: “Oh, you were really hungry. OK I’m here. Oh, you need to be burped. OK now. Well you really have slowed down. ” The inevitable repetitions of this shared response pattern creates for the baby an experience of changing affect states. The changing affect states combine bodily sensations of internal and generalized distress, supportive holding and positioning, internal fullness and generalized relief, perceptions of mother’s face, eye contact, and her spoken voice.

For instance, in turning from Freud’s almost exclusive focus on interpretation and insight, Kohut and Loewald, independent of one another, introduced the notion that the analyst must convey an attitude that provides the patient with essential developmental experiences and must be available for aspects of relationship required for psychic growth [p. 242]. We will demonstrate that intimate communication in an analysis conducted with a spirit of inquiry facilitates a relationship required for both psychic growth and understanding.

To conceive of an infant as capable of the experience of re-creating implies several innate abilities. In experiments, infants have been found to change their sucking rhythm or turn their heads a set number of times to one side (Papousek and Papousek, 1975) in order to turn on a light display they are preprogrammed to enjoy (“value,” Edelman). The infants will continue to do this much longer if they are the agent than if the light is turned on for them or randomly activated. In conversational runs with their mother, infants will activate responses when their mother pauses or is distracted.
