Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


This paper is about the therapeutic process and technique in psychotehrapy with deprived children. The need to monitor as a coherent whole both the broader environmental setting and the movements of the transference is illustrated by clinical material. It is concluded that a) the child's attack on the setting has to be picked up and contained both in the therapeutic relationship and in the network by teamwork, and b) by carefully following the child's movements in the transference relationship, the child can be helped to a dependent relationship inside which feelings can be made sense of.
