The author develops her own investi-gation about the countertransference position when the psychotherapist is involved by the patient’s story in the experience of extreme social violence, an experience that can dismantle any psychic organization. The usual analytical understanding seems futile and even reductive when the psychotherapist tries to investigate with the patient the conditions that made that "dismantling" possible. Amati Sas wonders about the ethical risk for the psychotherapist to unconsciously collude with the torturing system, a system that has been incorporated by the patient and can give a special "imprinting" to the therapeutic situation. It is possible, in fact, to "trivialize" what one hears and feels, since even the psychotherapist tends to defend himself from ambiguity and to adapt to anything. For this, the most acute attention is needed in the interpretation of the patient’s emotions, sharing with him the uncertainty towards the common social container. The unconscious fear of the psychotherapist not being able to give adequate re-straint to the patient’s vulnerability creates shame. The author proposes a careful investigation on the ethical value and the meaning of shame as a feeling in the countertransference, in order to deal with a possible transformative interaction of the traumatic experience of the patient.
