Lionel Raufast, Vincent Estellon: cold fury and the clinical work of counter-transference in psychoboxing

This article presents the treatment in psychoanalytic psychoboxing of a violent adolescent placed in an Educational Detention Center. These sessions enabled us to posit the existence of cold violence not coming from an aggressive sexualization but from a formidable offensive turning-around in response to feelings of the expressive body’s petrification. The article examines the specific counter-transference logic that these cold furies generate in the clinician, as well as some possible treatment solutions.
