Jérôme Glas : the “wounded” body of the analyst

The author shows how, in counter-transference experiences of precession, or gradual re-orientation, the wounded body of the analyst can let itself be invested as a place for representation of the transposition of the patient’s unconscious fantasies of castration. This gradual shifting of the axis of the countertransference should be understood as a valuable tool for the meta-psychological of unconscious process, even before the first analytical encounter.
