Abstract Family therapies which utilize the phenomenon of the identified patient do not clearly outline the process by which it occurs. This paper describes the clinical concept of Projective Identification as a basic mechanism that creates and maintains this phenomenon of the scapegoat or identified patient. The mechanism of Projective Identification is also presented as an integrative concept bridging the intrapsychic, interpersonal and systems dynamics in family therapy.
