Abstract

This lecture will concern the ways in which early attachment experiences and the subsequent development of character are expressed through embodied cognition. Reference will be made to the concept of ‘implicit relational knowing’ developed by the Boston group led by the late Dan Stern, Winnicott’s developmental model, and the theoretical framework of self-development in terms of mentalization. Case vignettes will be used to illustrate the relevance of this way of thinking to behavior and language within the psychoanalytic setting. The question of adapting the setting to overcome resistance based in avoidant attachment maneuvers will be considered.
