The authors offer a reading of the multiple code theory of Wilma Bucci both as a theory of the mind, intended as being in relationship with the world, and as a theory of the technique, intended as the hypothesis on how patient-therapist communication can spawn some changes in their being in relationship with the world. In particular they examine - also exemplifying it through the analysis of clinical cases discussed by Wilma Bucci - the process considered essential for therapeutic change: the emergence in the multiform subjective experience of symbols understood as patterns of multimodal sensory experiences in interpersonal communication that becomes defined and recognizable. The words in the talking cure become central only at a later stage and they are primarily the result of this process, not the engine. According to the authors’ hypothesis it is exactly the joint non verbal symbolization of subjective experience that is itself transformative and creative as it deconstructs the constraints of automatic processing that occurs in subsymbolic processing and greatly expands the degree of freedom of the subject. This non verbal symbolic communication in fact gives to analyst and patient the possibility of taking a position with respect to the experiences made recognizable within and because of the relationship in which they are immersed. And that is why psychotherapeutic change can be defined as an embodied, contextual and relational process.
Keywords: Multiple code theory, referential process, change factors, therapeutic relationship, symbolization
