Authenticity in the therapeutic relationship. Using the transference focus in the psychoanalytic therapy of a patient with borderline personality disorder
In case of patients with borderline personality disorder the poorly elaborated, polarized and schematic representations of the self and others are not intergrated into a more complex image. Thus the patient is not able to create a coherent picture of themselves and others. The identity diffusion is characterized by the lack of sense of continuity and contextualized experience. During the case to be presented the excessively varying transference processes moved into the focus of the treatment at an early stage. The inner model of attachment was activated in the transference, which similarly to other patients with severe personality pathology in general was unstable, controversial and full of conflicts. While using the transference focus, the inner organisations behind the primitive affects and the impulsive behaviour were explored. Early humiliation was revealed by the emotions of the patient and the reactions given to them. By seeing the therapist as being selfish and exploiting, she managed to understand her anger and the returning disappointment.
At the same time, the patient’s need for an extremely idealized caring relationship enhanced her unmitigated anxiety that her anger would destroy the therapeutic relationship and the therapist would punish and refuse her. During the treatment the patient has the chance to move away from a simple, poorly elaborated and concrete experience in the transference, which dominated and flooded subjectivity. The therapeutic interventions and changes will be illustrated with examples.
Key words: identity diffusion – affective instability –– transference focus – splitting and dissociation – object relations dyads
A great father has a large shadow. Archetypes of the father
Concerning the intellectual heritage of Jung, it is well-known in Jungian circles that the masculine side is less elaborated than the feminine. This appears most obviously with the archetype of the father. In fact, there is hardly anything written about this theme, and that blank area largely appears with most of his followers too. The author briefly describes the theories in contemporary Jungian literature attempting to provide explanations for this shortage. Then, based on Greek mythology, he seeks to illuminate this shadowy side so that different father archetypes might emerge: Uranus, Cronus, Zeus, Poseidon, Hades and Dionysus. Since no Hungarian studies of this theme have been published yet, the article endeavors to provide outlines of the overall image. On the other hand, it offers a detailed analysis of the tyrannical, devouring father archetype of Cronus owing to his great psychopathological significance. At the same time, it attempts to throws light on Dionysos too, a topical figure who foreshadowed the changing roles of modern man and of the father’s figure. At the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries he had an overwhelming effect on high-culture and even appeared in social processes. It is demonstrated with short dream details how these archetypes are reflected in modern times, in the patients’ dreams.
Key words: lack of father – father archetype – Greek mythology – tyrannical father – the transformation of the father’s role.
Róbert Oravecz, Miran Možina:
Past and conflicted present of Slovenian psychotherapy
Even though many personal and professional connections have been developed between Slovene and Hungarian psychotherapists during the last decades, a formal relationship has not been established between the two professional communities.
The intention of the authors of this article is, to present the unpretending past and the exciting present of Slovene psychotherapy and to contribute to the development and enrichment of the relationship between the two professional communities.

„Involuntary therapists” – Possibilities of therapy in an authoritarian organization
Our workshop presentation is a summary of the team introduction of the Clinical Psychology Department of the Institute of Forensic Psychiatry presented at the Conference of the Journal of Psychotherapy in May 2014. The Institute is assigned the task of the involuntary psychiatric care of approximately 200 patients, most of them diagnosed with a schizophrenia-spectrum disorder. Our patients are admitted after having committed a violent crime and the period of time they spend here is not predetermined (average period is 5 to 6 years). Given this lengthy period of time, we have a unique possibility to make long-term therapeutic plans, most of which is carried out by the staff of the Clinical Psychology Department. In our study, we present the special circumstances of our work and also the way our therapeutic efforts have been formed. One of our limitations is the vast amount of diagnostic work that takes up much of our capacity. We also run into difficulties building team work due to the predominantly biomedical approach of the institute as well as the extreme overload of our psychiatrist colleagues. We find ourselves in a two-faced situation: on the one hand, we are given autonomy in shaping our therapeutic work, on the other, we are also left alone with it with no substantial help from other therapist colleagues. In our study, we would like to give the reader some insight behind the scenes in an effort to lessen our isolation and share the unique nature of our work with all those interested.
