What are the aims of psychoanalytical therapy? We certainly want to reduce the patient’s distress and we need to accept his/her specific way of conceiving it. Maybe be our main objective is to help the patient see, or better feel, how his/her problem is the outcome of a dysfunctional solution and in this way we can provide a way to change something. But a second parallel aim has in my opinion just as much importance. This disregards the "dynamic" (although it is strictly linked to it) that determines and renews repetition in order to feel the "consistency" of being, one’s "weight" in the world, to know that one is a unique and peculiar part, a live subject that "is" what he/she is or better that "is" just because he/she is what it is. We therefore aim to a presence that is intimacy with the world, that is deep participation and, starting from the recognition and legitimation of one’s whole subjectuality, embodies it wholly in the world.
