5 The writing of this observer conveys an attuned quality in terms of how the baby is handled and held in this mOther's mind. If, as opposed to this level of attunement, the infant were to be physically and/or emotion­ ally walled off, impinged upon, or precipitously pushed away by mother (as appeared to be happening with baby Sam and his mOther) , then dis­ tortions and defects may occur in the psychic boundary that the infant is attempting to construct.

When this oc­ curs the analyst enters the territory of reexperiencing her/his own "unthink­ able anxieties," as Winnicott ( 1 960, p. 38) would say. In addition to the experience of one's analysis, infant-observation training can offer the op­ portunity to contact one's reservoir of primitive and infantile anxieties , expand one's capacity t o bear traumatic excess, and further symbolize as­ pects of these anxieties . Infant-observation training can also be very help­ ful to the clinician in bearing the transference/countertransference of in­ fantile experience that needs its own time, not only to be brought into a net of symbolic meaning, but for a necessary waiting before such words can be spoken in the voice that can be heard.

Keats ( 1 8 1 7) describes this as the attain­ ing of "negative capability" (p . 4 7 7) . Participation in infant-observation training increases one's capacities in both domains (depth/breadth com­ plexity/ inside/outside) . The observer learns to sustain waiting in uncer­ tainty and inaction in the face of variable pressures coming from within and from external reality "to act" -even if this act is only to initiate speech. The clinician's "negative capability" has direct bearing upon analytic work in terms of psychic spaciousness, that is to say, how much of the analysand's subj ectivity can be present or can emerge in the analysis .
