Sample text

We can use words to conceal as well as to reveal, and we can heighten, minimize, or even contradict what we say by the tone of our voice and other nonverbal cues. Indeed, what can be communicated by means of language, as many theorists have pointed out (Bollas, 1987; Loewald, 1960; Orange, 1995), is only a small part of communication. Much is conveyed nonverbally. From a relational systems perspective, language is seen as embedded within patterns of nonverbal relational activity such as posture, gaze direction, facial expression, and body movement (Fogel & Lyra, 1997).

We must feel reasonably certain that such responsiveness is available or risk the terror of self-annihilation, an experience that Orange, Atwood, and Stolorow (2002) place at the heart of psychosis. Consequently, the experience of difference is inextricably connected to a sense of enduring selfhood. It appears that along with experiences of sameness, experiences of difference are also to be had very early in life by means of the matching activities of infants and their caretakers. The microanalysis of films of mothers and infants reveals that they do not match one another exactly.

As we shall see in Chapter 3, when orderliness and predictability give way to chaos under conditions of trauma, meaning is lost. Forming Categories It is virtually impossible to find meaning in lived experience, or, for that matter, to conduct mental operations of any kind, without the ability to form categories (Thelen & Smith, 2000). We make sense of the world by recognizing that events or objects that are not identical may have equivalent meaning. In agreement with Lakoff (1987), Thelen and Smith (2000) reject the traditional objectivist view of knowledge as a symbolic representation of external reality, and categorization as governed by abstract structures that transcend specific experiences, in favor of a view of categorization as embodied and creative.
