** spoiler alert ** "People were talking about inner reality, the unconscious life, and at one point he turned to the group and said, quite angrily, 'Don't you care what really happened? Isn't that what is really important?' At which point the group just sort of backed off and the discussion ended. Because the answer to that, you know, from an analytic point of view is 'No, we're not so concerned with what really happened. We're concerned with how it got worked into the patient's inner life.'" -p.57
