I said he wanted love, trust, and free-Â�flowing interaction but it frightened him and he wasn’t ready to participate with me or with others. I said that this might be his contribution to the stiff, cold world he described. ” In the transference, Paul seems to use evocatory projective identification dynamics (Spillius 1988) in which he relates to me in a way that produces particular counter-Â�transference affects (Waska 2005, 2011a, 2011b). Specifically, he seems to use me and locate me in his mind as the wished-Â�for version of mother and father who is spontaneous, curious, and caring.

I also interpreted that given how special his mother believes he is, but not really noticing the real Paul, Paul feels he has to discard his real self and try to live up to this special superhero status for his mother.

These phantasies of sudden betrayal and loss have derailed and damaged her ability to make healthy connections, especially romantic ones. We have worked on the ways in which Jane both protects herself from this loss as well as how she creates the very thing she dreads.
