Sample text

He gives the drive for knowledge a new importance, placing it on a level with the drives for love and hate. The Kleinian concepts of containment, counter-­transference and projective identification are also redefined and elaborated; he explores all these ideas through his counter-transference with his patients, particularly the more disturbed amongst them, and also by continuing self-scrutiny, thought and reflection. Bion’s earliest work focuses on new ways of working with groups, after which he turns to individual psychoanalysis, psychosis and a new model of the psyche.

The ultimate aim for the Independent psychotherapist is for the patient to become authentically himself; in Kleinian work, it is for him to increase his insight and capacity to be in touch with his internal and external world. For both groups, however, what most assist him in reaching these ends are first, his own commitment to his psychological development, and second, the depth and sensitivity of the psychotherapist’s understanding and acceptance of the patient and how effectively she conveys this to him, implicitly and explicitly, consciously and unconsciously.

Perhaps Bion’s brusque manner, his problems with guilt and aggression, his opposition to what he saw as misused authority might have provoked those to whom he was accountable; or maybe his gifts simply did not emerge sufficiently clearly until he had found his true metier, individual psychoanalysis.
