Marie-Christine Aubray : letting oneself be surprised

The analyst, confronted with transference and counter-transference obstacles in treatments with adolescents who have great problems of subjectivation, may be led to readjust the therapeutic setting by receiving the parents from time to time with their adolescent. Within this multi-dimensional space, he may have the opportunity of being « surprised », transformed in his psychical functioning with a view towards restarting his subjectalizing function in his relation with the adolescent.
