Example text

W e do not live in one world, but in two . . w e live in an internal world which is as real a place to live as the outside world. . Psychic reality could be treated in a concrete way" (p. 178). This inner world of phantasies and dreams influence us as much as external events. Thus the couple's pre-disaster inner world will influence their responses to the death of a child. Furthermore, alongside their own individual inner worlds, they share another, third, inner world within their relationship: it is made up partly of their shared ideals, partly of aspects of themselves which they project into each other, and partly of shared unconscious phan­ tasies.

In doing this I hope to make the point that this is a hard-won development and also to underline the importance of this capacity in the therapist w h e n it is absent in the couple. I believe that it has its roots in certain developmental tasks, the first of w h i c h is the development of thinking, the second the working through of the Oedipus complex. However, before discussing these I shall try, through examples of couples describing their difficulties at the point of coming for help, to show w h a t this couple state of mind and its absence looks like.
