Sample text

However this interweaving does not imply confusion or blurring. The model we use in therapy is based on the idea that the meeting of two people creates a different ‘third reality’, and the goal is to inspire the emergence of a ‘marital self ’ (Eiguer, 2008), in which the partners, alongside the therapist, learn to observe their own specific attributes and how these can contribute to a reciprocal, active interchange. New ways of thinking, enabled by the therapist, enable a reconstruction or reformulation of the self, the internal objects, and the relationship with the other.

The dyadic membrane may become too porous, so ineffective in filtering out the external intrusions that jeopardise the necessary ‘sense of us’ (G. S. Klein, 1976) that is fundamental for the couple’s functioning. On the other hand, the membrane may also become so rigid that it completely excludes the external world, resulting in a dyadic fusion with a shared and undifferentiated self (Giannakoulas, 1992).
