Abstract
This mini dissertation attempts to understand the early stages of a psychotherapeutic process between a trainee psychologist and a Deaf client. Both a social constructionist perspective of the experience of being disabled/Deaf, and an intersubjective lens, have been utilized in order to understand the nature of the therapeutic failures that occurred and how they functioned. A psychoanalytic case methodology was used to analyse the first eight sessions in the psychotherapeutic process with a Deaf client and members of her family.
