The embodied setting: the contribution of neuroscience to the understanding of the therapeutic relationship. Winnicott notes that it is not possible to locate the mind in the brain. Can it then be assumed that the whole body is able to think? Neuro-science helps us to understand how this happens through a non-reductive study of the brain. In this article, particular attention is paid to those unconscious modali-ties, routed in the psyche-soma, which make the communication between patient and therapist meaningful ( projective identification, attunement, enactment). The setting is understood as a sort of "homeostasis" that ensures the continuation and development of the relationship, also taking into account the external con-text. Covid, for example, by changing the usual rules of the setting, has highlight-ed how the therapist’s priority function is to always keep the thread of the rela-tionship, unsuring its survival and vitality. The setting is also understood as the holding environment that includes the therapist’s personality. A significant part is dedicated to enactment, understood as a way in which the dissociated emotions ask for an audience, being able to be elaborated only with the deep emotional involvement of both members of the therapeutic couple.
Keywords: to go on being, homeostasis, dissociated states of the Self, intersubjec-tivity, attunement, vital feelings, enactment, internal setting of the therapist.
