CASE PRESENTATION

Verona is brought to consultation for obesity, at age twelve and a half. Her parents do not live together and during the interviews that I have separately with each of them, it was very difficult for me to workout Verona's history. I state the fact that they do not live together but it can't be said that they are totally separated since they have sporadic relationships, unknown to their children, apart from being permanently interconnected through reapeated reconciliation attempts.
Verona spends a great deal of time watching television and shows a marked inability to concentrate on her homework. As opposed to the depressive and apathetic personality of the mother, the father appeared to be controversial and histrionic while relating his history and constantly referred to his important social and business connections.
Paraphrasing Bion: "This is the story of which the elements are discernible amongst the ruins of the psyche, to which the scattered references to curiosity, arrogance, and stupidity have pointed the way".
A special circumstance, not to be generalized, arose from the dynamics of the "analytic field" which was the following: I started to write everything I thought of her or imagined that was taking place in her at that moment, and to draw her while she was sleeping. To do so, I had to watch her with great attention.(Picture 3).
