Repeat, build and elaborate. Reflections on the unrepeatable repetition in the theory and clinic of contemporary psychoanalysis


In this paper the author describes a clinical case related to the contemporary theoretical conceptualizations of repetition, construction and elaboration of those amnesic psychic contents and attitudes which some of our patients insistently repeat during the developement of their psychoanalytic process. The involvement of the analyst’s person as a whole as well as the strong validation of construction as a major technical instrument constitute some of the main subjects of the author’s proposal.
