This article illustrates some of the specific aspects of the psychotherapeutic approach with medically ill patients. Our considerations are based on our daily work in CL Psychiatry and refer to the psychodynamic model, rooted in Freudian's thought. Characteristics are the setting, as well as the relationship with the patient and the interactions with the physicians as the "emergence" of the suffering body within the therapy. We therefore adopt specific approaches such as the work with the Auxiliary Ego and the narrative reconstruction. This paper illustrates our experiences applying the mentioned tools with patients suffering from chronic pain and cancer.
