A case studyMitch, a fiftyish writer and political activist in his fourth marriage had come topsychotherapy in response to his wifes complaints about his `insensitivity anddark emotions. Although he acknowledged that his father abandoned himbefore birth and his mother was mercilessly depressed, he had considerabledifficulty identifying with his wifes complaints and with any conception ofhimself as an unhappy person. A year into therapy he found himself quiteunexpectedly talking about his mother, the constant heaviness of her depression,and the pervasive absence of human warmth and care in his childhood.He ended the session, rather typically for him, by claiming `but thats the pastand Ive moved on. However, the following week he reported a puzzlingdream: he found himself in a home he shared with a woman who was justleaving as the dream began. As he looked around the house he realized therewere places he knew nothing about. Opening one door, he found the furnaceroom but could not enter it because swirling dust and mist throughout theroom made vision and movement impossible. He shut that door and openedanother: there, in an attic?like room, he found dozens of tortoises crawlingabout the floor. Out of the ensuing detailed conversation, a rather plainspokenaccount came forward: `I hadnt realized the degree to which I hadshut out the impact of having the mother I did. I could find no warmth in mychildhood and lived as if among creatures who could barely move and existedwithin an impenetrable shell.Case study from: Barnett, L., & Madison, G. (2012).
