The two-way relationship as the basis of psychoanalytic therapy

In contrast to the classic view of psychoanalytic psychotherapy, according to which the primary curative factor is language, i.e. the analysand's messages and the analyst's interpretations, the author also draws attention to the importance of non-verbal structures in the therapeutic two-way relationship. Essential elements of the working alliance, according to the thesis, are controlled by non-verbal behavior, which is why this behavior must be systematically observed and evaluated. Only when non-verbalized fantasies and affects are taken into account is it possible to turn the therapeutic relationship into a "good relationship".


The Analysand-Therapist Relationship and its Importance in Psychoanalytic Therapy
The classical opinion encountered in psychoanalytic psychotherapy is that the main curative agent is language, i. e. the information proffered by the analysand and the interpretations of the analyst. Over and against this view the author draws attention to the non-verbal structures in the twosome relationship between analysand and therapist. Essential elements of this working alliance, he suggests, operate via non-verbal behavior. Hence this behavior needs to be systematically observed and evaluated. His conclusion is that it requires the consideration of non-verbalized fantasies and affects for the therapeutic relationship to develop into a "good relationship".
