Dancing in the dark, moving towards the light: complex patterns of dyadic interaction in psychotherapy sessions

Dr Loyola McLean

Attachment research is now a secure base at the heart of psychodynamic psychotherapeutic thinking. Listening with an ear for attachment is crucial in understanding our intersubjective states of mind, especially when we end up out deep or lost in the dark and the way forward must be closely discerned. Yet while the transference-countertransference may be a relational expression of procedural memory, an activation of earlier experience where the deep past and the surface present coexist, attachments take a long time to shift. So moment-by-moment we try to shift the complex dance and music of the interactions towards greater liveliness, playfulness and the integration of trauma. We hope to optimize these “moments of meeting”.

Dr Loyola McLean

Dr McLean is a Consultation-Liaison Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist in public and private practice with interests in attachment psychosomatics, the psychophysiology of stress system disorders and the therapeutic consequences. She is currently working as a Psychotherapy Educator with the Sydney West and Greater Southern Psychiatry Training Network. Her recent PhD studied the mediating haemostatic and inflammatory links between depression and coronary heart disease. That research project nourished her interest in attachment theory as a theory of 'body mind and stress systems' and her research will continue in this area. Her aims are to explore the underlying psychophysiology and the paths to repair and to make attachment theory more user-friendly for clinicians and patients in order to foster more collaborative ways of understanding presentations and treatment goals and to promote integrated therapies.
