Sample text

Damasio notes that the autobiographic self image constitutes a healthy background, "often just hinted and half guessed ... 174). Damasio's view of the autobiographic self connects immediate core consciousness with the forms of memory that are explicitepisodic memory and semantic memory. The sense of a biographic self that arises from this bridging permits a child to say to herself and others "My name is Helen. I live in the yellow house on the corner. " However, Damasio's focus on the "rock-solid" memories of pertinent facts accounts for only a small segment of the autobiographic story of self we tell to others and to ourselves.

Empathic sensitivity to others and to the self can be expected to facilitate both secure attachment in the dyad and cooperative alliance in the triad. Alternatively, communicative patterns of dismissive, avoidant, or anxious resistant preoccupation on the part of one or both parents increase the probability of a stressed or collusive alliance. Parental inclination, moreover, to moments of disorganization or dissociative dyadic communication under stress can be expected to contribute to unrepaired miscoordinations in a triadic goal.

Thus, for the early sense of self, a perception carries with it the sense of a veridical belief, and a belief carries the conviction of there being no alternatives. Thus a conviction of truth as the child views it will be stated as an absolute often leading to clashes with older children and parents. Beginning with syntactic and imagistic symbolization, inferences about the self with other are created (Weiss and Sampson, 1986). The content of these inferences lead to patterns of conceptual organization that underly identity and relational expectations.
