Rise and breakthrough of complex transference feelings. De-repression of significant memories and associations allowing for a meaningful exploration of the patient's developmental history. 5. Interpretation and consolidation of insights obtained in the process. Phase 1. Inquiry Davanloo advocates a descriptive, phenomenological approach to inquiry. This includes taking a survey of the patient's symptomatic and characterological difficulties, with an emphasis on specificity and a focus on feeling.

Their characterological defenses, such as helplessness or defiance, quickly erect a barrier to meaningful communication and can become an obstacle in treatment. Although the symptoms presented may be plentiful and fairly severe, they also cause significant distress and interfere with functioning, providing a real incentive to work that milder forms of psychic disturbance do not. This distress can be the therapist's ally. On the right side of the spectrum are patients with ego fragility, who tend to display some cognitive impairment when anxious and resort to highly regressive defenses such as dissociation.

To avoid facing the anger toward her son and the part of her that wishes she was rid of him altogether, the patient has had to detach from him. The emerging grief about the cost of such a defensive strategy is a direct indication that this defense is becoming highly dystonic. This painful feeling will prove a powerful ally to the therapeutic process. In addition to the painful cost of this defense, there is the additional desire to attach to her son and to be a good mother to him. This is another factor in her strong motivation to face what has been avoided.
