NO ONE CAN HEAR ME SCREAM!

Robert Irwin Wolf, LPsyA, LCAT, ATR-BC

Introduction:

This clinical case study will attempt to demonstrate the clinical application of a combination of art therapy, expressive therapy (Robbins, 1980), and a rich variety of psychoanalytic theories in an in-depth psychoanalytic case study, as well as demonstrating the analyst’s ability to process countertransference material through the art form of stone carving. The intense countertransference inductions (Lotterman, 1990; Roland, 1981; Chuah, 1986; and Wolf, 1985) inevitably experienced while working on a psychoanalytic level with a schizoaffective patient on an outpatient basis were at times overwhelming and needed to be channeled, metabolized, and synthesized in order for the analyst to sift through the myriad of confusing data and remain grounded, centered, and able to provide meaningful, effective interventions for this challenging client.
