Enactments are compelling due to their intimate relationship to unconscious fantasy and the ‘here and now’ of transference and countertransference. This leads us to the living out with patients of unconscious fantasies and object relations configurations. For a long time psychoanalysis considered enactments something to be avoided. This group looks to discover more about the action and interaction sequences that accompany verbal dialogue between analyst and analysands, as well as other issues involved in psychoanalytic treatment.
