The Myth of Isolated Therapy 13 Human beings are by nature relational. There is more to this assumption than meets the eye. It implies our psychological life cannot be the life of the isolated mind; it must originate, grow, and change within the intersubjective contexts in which we find ourselves. This premise requires us to ask not only what happened to this patient in what contexts of relatedness or experienced isolation to bring about the suffering he or she brings to treatment. As contextualists, we must also ask what resources for healing are available in this analyst-patient pair.

Indeed, it could be said that selfobject experiences occur on a broad, ever fluctuating, context-dependent continuum that runs from the archaic to the mature. In a famous phrase Kohut (1984) compared the notion that we outgrow selfobject needs to the notion that animals could outgrow their need for oxygen. Kohut's assertion of the normalcy of adult selfobject needs makes way for a radical re-visioning of our understanding of intimate relationships.

Chapter 4 will treat the issue of trauma further. • Psychotic states/convictions of nonbeing.
