When the analyst cannot fulfill this function, we recommend supervision or more personal analysis. This perspective is valid, ethical, and safe, but it ignores what we all know but have somehow found it awkward to discuss with each other: The therapist’s experience of a selfobject relationship with the patient not only is pervasively operative in every therapeutic relationship but constitutes a precondition for the therapist to respond in ways that will enable the patient to experience a selfobject relationship with him or her.

Redefine Kohut’s meaning. For example, if we return to Kohut’s general meaning of selfobject, to which Stolorow et al. made reference (“that dimension of our experience of another person that relates to this person’s functions in shoring up our self”), we see that Kohut’s meaning of selfobject is the experience of the functions provided by another and is not the object experienced subjectively as serving selfobject functions, as emphasized by Stolorow. Bacal (1990a), in referring to Stolorow’s 1986 article, acknowledged and agreed with Stolorow’s object-focused conceptualization of selfobject: Self psychological theory has, in effect, focused on the experience of self¬ object function and has lost sight of the object that provides that function and of the importance of the relationship for the patient.
