I’ve had a patient who will say, “I haven’t really got anything very much to report. In fact, I don’t really know quite why I’ve come. ” Now, when the patient gets off the couch at the end of the session, you can see (if you haven’t seen it before) that he’s simply pouring sweat with anxiety! How did these two things go together? He’s got nothing to report, nothing particular has happened, everything all is well, so to speak. But the only clue that you’ve got is that he is obviously suffering extreme distress.
I’d be prepared to bet that that might be so. It might be because I was a bit bothered because goodness knows what had happened. But one is not going to guarantee that the chance remark like “Good afternoon” is absolutely devoid of irritation. And certainly not if a psychotic patient says so! But the rest of what you’ve said, the fundamental nature of the relationship that you have towards the patient just escapes his attention. So it’s very intense (skindeep), or very penetrating, but very narrow.
Now, I would defy anybody who is a psychoanalyst—because after all, we tend to become psychoanalysts with a view to do something about these things—not to feel the pressure of this. And what I am arguing in favour of that, is that one should try not to let that pressure distort one’s judgment. I think that in my experience, the patient can feel something about your failure to interpret, and about your failure to be jockeyed into a premature interpretation, which gives him something to go on with.
