Throughout Kristeva develops the inspiration that psychoanalysis is the most important to serenity, with its procedures of turning again, in retrospect, investigating the self, and refashioning psychical harm into whatever worthwhile and gorgeous. consistent wondering, Kristeva contends, is vital to reaching the arrival to phrases all of us search on the center of forgiveness.

As an expression of the patient’s paradoxical attempt to take possession of a body of his own with its own boundaries. For these otherwise untreatable forms Delion bears witness to the utility of the technique of “packing”: after preliminary psychological preparation of the patient, cold moist packs are closely applied, binding both legs and arms to the torso for 30 to 60 minutes, in the presence of two or more assistants who can help the patient whenever necessary and who, based on a technique first devised by Esther Bick, act as close observers of the session.
I would emphasize that transference onto the body makes it possible to reach a level of experience that cannot necessarily be reduced to terms of particular mental contents. In fact, exploring feeling as a general human category brings up our vaster original condition –which itself cannot be directly reduced to symbolic terms, and which is ingrained in our identity as Homo sapiens –in which the duality of knowing and feeling coexists with that of mind and body, as identity: our awareness of bodily feeling can be the source of “the very sense of being, which is in continuous opposition to non-sense” (Garroni, 1992: 15).
This orientation is not to be taken literally, but should, of course, be understood in the context of a flexible relational exchange typical of the psychoanalytic approach, in which the analyst makes it clear that she is in relational mode, even when that relationship is not in the foreground of a normal interpretation of the transference. When, in fact, we do not intervene with the classic system of interpretations of the transference, we find ourselves all the more involved in profound transferential dynamics that require the activation of the analyst’s intense rêverie (Bion, 1962).
