Dear colleagues
You may have noticed the absence of your Ad Hoc Bulletin in your letterbox. In a way the Ad Hoc Bulletin had reported trouble sleeping and daytime drowsiness. Upon further investigation the editors had assessed that it wasn´t of sleep apnea but of suppressed I/F that the Bulletin´s sleep deprivation had been evoked. No oxygen deprivation, but article deprivation , suppressed painful feelings, striving for expression, had caused the Ad Hoc Bulletin´s interrupted sleep. Yes, it is true, just like our human brains, the Ad Hoc needs nutrition to stay alert and focused throughout the day, day after day, month after month, year after year. Yes, it is true, colleagues, your articles supply the Ad Hoc Bulletin with the energy it needs to stay happy, sharp, and alive. So may we encourage you to submit your articles for publication in the Ad Hoc Bulletin of Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy : practice and theory.?! From now on, the computer or other electronic device on which you may be reading this issue of the Ad Hoc Bulletin will supply you with the information and articles that the Ad Hoc Bulletin and her editors will transmit over the Internet. Our Polish colleague, Renata Komorowska-Pietrzykowska, MD, starts with her article : Helping a dissociating patient to deal with her anxiety. And she is right: first help the patient to quit their front door defenses to establish at least some degree of working alliance, then help the patient to understand the self destructive function of her cellar door defenses in order for the patient to be able to monitor her own physiological symptoms of anxiety. The second article, Anxiety assessment with a highly anxious and depressed patient, written by our (also Polish) colleague Joanna Duchniewicz, MD, MA Psych, demonstrates again that a patient will only be able to take responsibility for coping with her own anxiety after opening the front door to the therapist and accepting the therapist´s help to quit her cellar door defenses and assess all of her anxiety manifestations with love, care and precision. Nima Ghorbani, PhD, from Iran, closes the row: Helping a patient to free herself from her superego pathology. We will witness how the patient´s increasing ego adaptive capacity and her increasing capacity to regulate her anxiety led to a major breakthrough of rage, guilt, grief toward her mother and to better understanding of T-C-P links The Editors, (C.L.M. Cornelissen, M.J.Stein, J. ten Have-de Labije) just like the patients , are grateful to these therapists and colleagues, who were so generous to share their competence with us.
Till we write and read again!
Josette ten Have-de Labije
