This article explores the clinical phenomenon of hidden psychotic core. A number of pa-tients who seem to function on a neurotic level may have a hidden early primitive part which functions with more primitive defences.

Keywords: Psychotic core, early pre-oedipal trauma, enactments, use of countertransference, pre-symbolic
