But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
Starting with a clinical vignette, this paper will discuss a dialectical approach to Fiona's anxieties using both Freudian and Lacanian ideas to shed a fresh light on Bion's concept of containment.
