Drawing on the work of Bion and the Barangers, Ferro claims that the basic focus of the analytic relationship is the conscious and unconscious interpersonal/intersubjective processes going on between the analyst and patient. He illustrates this theory with numerous detailed clinical examples drawn from various key aspects of his work mainly with children.
