Abstract/Book Review

This paper reflects on the history of an 11 year-old boy and the themes that were to be reprised in his own strategies for dealing with his objects. The use of the body in abuse and as a way of avoiding the risk of thought was principal in this, as was the avoidance of shame and humiliation. His defences rather easily became those of the network until thought was regained and a safe, resilient environment that would enable therapy to continue was finally sought
