This paper discusses the clinical material presented by Kari Hauge along certain lines of reflection mainly concerned with issues of trauma, regression, and transference. The trauma to which I refer seems to be related to the patient’s whole life and to her inability to make use of an experience of continuity and stability of being. The issue is discussed from the point of view of the repetition of trauma in adolescence and its manifestations in the analytic situation.
