Annotation: This article attempts to theoretically analyse the concept of “relational homeˮ, introduced by Robert D. Stolorow. The clinical and theoretical contexts of the formation of this concept, due to the original theory of mental trauma, formulated within the framework of intersubjective psychoanalysis, are studied. Based on this study, an analysis of this concept was made. In the course of this study, the content of this concept was revealed. A phenomenological analysis of various types of mental trauma was carried out, in relation to which Robert D. Stolorow proposes to apply this strategy. And also a comparison was made between two different situations: using the considered strategy in relation to a person experiencing a painful affect, as well as in relation to a person who has experienced a mental trauma. It has been pointed out that this difference reveals two different types of emotional shelter, one of which takes place in human relationships in everyday life, and the second, mainly refers to the situation of psychological counseling. The article also proposed an interpretation of these varieties of psychoanalytic strategies in terms of intersubjective field theory, designed to emphasise the importance of this distinction.
