Sample text

Both are magically invested, but whereas in the fetish the transference excludes therapist as person, the talisman embodies the transference to the therapist and carries it over time. I have classified the artist’s relation to the picture into five stages (Schaverien 1991:106, 1994a: 44). In psychosis these are activated in particular ways. Immediately after the picture is made there may be an unconscious identification with the image, magical thought processes may dominate and the picture is often related to as a fetish.

The transference is clearly exhibited and acknowledged. Later, further acknowledgement of relationship was possible when Dr Y moved on after six months. Lena spontaneously made a picture on which she wrote ‘Thank you Dr Y’. She placed this too, on the ward in a prominent position, where he and everyone else would be able to see it. In this way she was able to fully acknowledge the loss associated with his leaving. The picture was a talisman; it was consciously valued, and embodied the significance of the therapeutic relationship.

It plays a significant part in bringing the unconscious to consciousness and in facilitating relationship. The picture is a multi-faceted transactional object. NOTES 1 For a distinction between the transactional object, ‘the transitional object’ (Winnicott 1971) and ‘the transformational object’ (Bollas 1987), see Schaverien (1994b, 1995). 2 See Duane (1991:55–8) and Lena (1991:130–6). Other pictures by Lena are shown in this chapter. 3 The unit opened in 1962 and was closed in the early 1980s.
