Felt on Felt Contact:

An Evocation of Early Enlivening Experiences in an Analytic Dyad

Sujatha Subramanian, Ph.D.

IPTAR Conference Room

 

Infancy research has enriched psychoanalytic understanding of development, expanding our conceptions of the earliest forms of love. Sujatha Subramanian has taken particular interest in the mutual regulatory processes occurring in both the parent-infant dyad and in the adult psychoanalytic dyad. Here, she will discuss a patient whose early traumatic loss found deeper meaning and a more evocative expression through a variety of rich aesthetic experiences he shared in the treatment.   Visual memories and poetic sensory language evoked early feeling states in himself and his analyst.  The capacity to enter and utilize such states is understood in light of the nonverbal communication that occurs in the early infant dyad.
