Henderson, David (2014) Nkisi nkondi: an image of transference and projective identification in the analytic process. Psychodynamic Practice, 20 (1) . pp. 62-67. ISSN 1475-3634 (doi:10.1080/14753634.2014.868621)

Abstract

This paper explores what it might mean for the patient to use the analyst as an nkisi nkondi. The nkisi nkondi is also known as a nail fetish. The study procedes using four categories: construction; power; and, time. The nkisi nkondi and the analyst are conduits for the managing of the unquenchable passions for order and for violence.
