The intervention led to the unfolding of two important memories, one involving the patient as a 3-year-old who loved to go to church because she could sidle up to a woman friend of her mother’s after church and rub up against the woman’s fur coat, which soothed her. She sadly realized she did not associate soothing with her mother. She hoped that by presenting herself as a mess to me, I would soothe and help to organize her. She also remembered that during her summer break from college at age 19, she went to the kitchen to tell her mother she was on her way out for a date.
