Luca Quagelli: role of repetition in the construction of psychical boundaries

The author uses clinical material from the psychotherapy of a psychotic adolescent boy to investigate phenomena of identical repetition, their signification and the possibility of transforming them. These manifestations will be linked to failures in the encounter between the subject and his first environment, at the time when psychical boundaries between inside and outside, self and other, have not yet been organized.
