This article explores the manifestation of the "relational unconscious" as a co-constructed, emergent amalgam of the unconscious’ of analytic participants in the field of any ongoing psychotherapy, whether composed of two, three, or more participants in the field. The phe-nomenon is illustrated in the psychotherapy of a couple, Jay and Kim, revealing the influences of their unconscious minds, and the therapist’s, upon one another’s. The analogy of the field as a dramatic "stage" helps capture how the therapeutic drama evolves, creating themes of dramatic repetition, in relationship to spontaneous moments of improvisation which lend to unpredictably altering the fixed premises of their respective narratives.
Keywords: Relational unconscious, couples psychotherapy, field, dramatic repetition
