Psychoanalytic thinking and theory help us to understand the need for these defensive maneuvers, the particularities of the forms they take and the intransigent ways in which they operate. More importantly, this form of treatment, either individually or as a group, also provides a path to recovery. It cannot bring back, of course, what has been lost or those who have died or replaced parts of the body that have been destroyed, this form of therapy operates in restructuring of the patient's subjective, inner reality and not in objective reality (Budd., S., Rusbridger, R., C., 2005). Through psychoanalytic therapy, by integrating the psychic trauma, the subject has the chance, the possibility of recovery, of a future in which the objective reality is differentiated from the traumatic subjective reality and the quality of life is improved. In other words, there is the possibility of a personal future once more (Budd., S., Rusbridger, R., 2005).
