Keywords: behaviour stability | pathologic communication | symbolic interaction | verbalization of the suffering | transactional analysis

Splitting the personality from the context, even if in an informal, non-structured situation, is impossible, while the behaviour stability vs. the behaviour instability are even more obvious in the case of symbolic interactions, among which the language is the most important one. It records only the most frequent phenomena, being incapable of naming what is unique or particular. The conscious or unconscious distortion of a message places the recipient in an emotional state of uncertainty that may go from sadness to deep anxiety. The deliberate elusion of the psychopathological terminology – having the explicit role of distracting the patient’s attention from his/her personal troubles, breaking thus the contemplation of one’s own suffering- is not an universally accepted technique; the strategic therapy, for example, focuses exclusively on the symptomatic behaviour that needs to be changed, keeping, however, the linguistic expression of the suffering in the terms suggested by the patients. From a therapeutic perspective, ignoring the linguistic expression of a symptom the consequences of which are unpredictable, is thought to be inefficient: once accepted, it has to be integrated in a new interpersonal system, the change of the context engendering the change of the message unconsciously spread by the patient: isolation, as primordial pathogenous source and, implicitly, the refuse of the intersubjective communication, have a high self-destructuring potential.
