“Failure of the primary relationship and the absence of mental triangulation in eating disorders. The dialectic between interpersonal and intrapsychic links”

The paper draws on 2 assessment sessions of an anorexic mother who was worried about her two-year old’s refusal to eat. The complex projective processes which contributed to the little girl’s symptoms are revealed from the observations of the mother-child interactions. Theoretical thoughts about eating disorders and the development of the internal world are also addressed
