Psychosis

The intolerant beginning with annihilating thought; then they muddying adjectives, verb, is kidnapped and, ultimately, go to the subject BERTOLT BRECHT the ideological crisis (end of the illusion that something must be done by others); the economic crisis (huge cost of outpatient treatment); the crisis of representativeness of the analysts in the society; they endanger the psychiatric reform as a whole and push, not only to the biologist response, but towards the schizophrenia solution. Now, do we have the analysts an alternative psychoses response?. We are accustomed to a series of formulas: there is no unconscious, there is no object, there is no choice of object, no name – the-father, there is no symbolization. All negative phrases. Freud has brought an understanding of psychoses, a series of causal hypotheses, but with an honesty that honors him, concluded: ‘Psychoanalysis with psychotic patients is not possible’. (Another negative formula). What to do then when we accept in? does our inquiry, public or private, to a patient that we have forbidden entry access to the fruits of the analysis? The truth is that everytime I encounter a psychotic animated with my analyst desire, desire for opening of the unconscious, there where the unconscious has been rejected; with a technique and a frame that will be continuously brutalized; each time that a meeting is set (it isn’t always) happens something there that interrogates the theory. Psychosis raises many questions.

I chose one of them for titling this presentation: Who directs the cure in psychoses?. It is a trick question, since who directs the cure is always the same: the desire of the analyst. The analyst, not his desire. The question I ask is: what desire brings into play the psychosis in the place of the analyst?, there where no longer worth the happy formula: the opening of the unconscious desire. When we encounter a psychotic faced the absence of shared budgets, absence that makes it for the our discourse is as debatable and devoid of all power of certainty as yours for our listening.
