The article is the transcription of a therapeutic session led by M. Spagnuolo Lobb during a seminar at Kore University in Enna (Italy). The session focuses on the support to awareness in a co-created experience between therapist and client. Words and bodily movements are interwoven at the contact boundary in a relational dance where the intentionality for contact, the now-for-next, becomes the guide of the therapeutic intervention. Comments on the session by Prof. A. Schimmenti, a psychoanalyst, and dr. P.A. Cavaleri, a Gestalt therapist, follow. The result is an interesting dialogue between psychoanalysis and Gestalt therapy.
Keywords: Body, movement, mentalizing, contact boundary, psychoanalysis, Gestalt therapy
