Abstract:
This paper describes some features of the behaviour of a severely
disturbed adopted latency boy. Peter was born premature, suffered
several early hospitalizations and
surgical operations, and at 2 months of age was removed from his
mother's care by Social Services for neglect and abandonment.

Although his subsequent development has been clouded by a series of
losses and sudden changes of caregivers, Peter has maintained an
unexpected desire to relate, showing
considerable innate resilience. When feeling endangered, Peter had
developed a defensive olfactive container using his bodily smell and
farts to envelop himself in a protective
cloud of familiarity against the dread of falling apart, and to hold his
personality together.

In the paper Fordham's views of development and Anzieu's concept of
psychic envelopes constitute the theoretical underpinning. Bion's
concepts of beta- and
alpha-elements are discussed in relation to Jung's views on symbolic
development and psychological containment.
