This paper discusses how connectedness fosters an attitude that affects the analyst’s treatment approach in four important areas: our receptivity to permeable boundaries, our capacity and willingness both to be vulnerable and to share our subjectivity, our desire to protect our patients, and our responsiveness to our patients’ tendrils of health. Verbatim material will illustrate these concepts.
