Clinical Life in the Context of the Pandemic

Am J Psychoanal. 2021 Aug 2:1-34. doi: 10.1057/s11231-021-09308-9. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIn this article, six analysts describe theory and practice in the time of COVID-19, examining the quality of après-coup in the way that the pandemic and its attendant crises trigger early memory and early experiences of helplessness. In the clinical events we see that the age of the patient, the circumstances and approach of the analyst, the novelty of the frame are all crucial determinants of clinical outcomes.PMID:34341465 | PMC:PMC8326642 | DOI:10.1057/s11231-021-09308-9 (Source: American Journal of Psychoanalysis)

Challenges for the Future of Psychoanalysis

MedWorm - Mon, 2022-06-13 18:21
Am J Psychoanal. 2021 Jul 27. doi: 10.1057/s11231-021-09316-9. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThis paper summarizes the current crisis of psychoanalysis in its relations to the scientific and cultural environment. It proposes tasks to assure the survival and contributions of psychoanalysis as science, profession, and humanistic discipline. It proposes emphasis on empirical research in the boundaries with the neurosciences and social psychology, and the development of an infrastructure for research linked to its educational program. It proposes renovation in training, abolishment of the training analysis system, and systematic teaching and research on the psychoanalytic psychotherapies focused on specific pathologies. This overall proposal stresses the need to collaborate and potentially int...

Unbridled! Thoughts on times of self-begetting and violence

Am J Psychoanal. 2021 Jul 19. doi: 10.1057/s11231-021-09298-8. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTMind is multi-levelled displaying an eons-long prehistory, while as Freud well knew civilization is new and frail: in biological evolution Thanatos long antecedes Eros. Complex intraspecies interchanges in higher animals proceeding by analogic communication give a firm place to Freudian Dingvorstellungen. Self-recognition and reflective thought come exceedingly late, in apes, requiring affectionate baby-mother mirroring. Deriving from inquiry on ego-dystonic neuroses, psychoanalysis must in the Age of Media deal with ego-syntonic pathologies sporting a demise of self-observation and self-reflection: borderline, autistic and autistoid disturbances. The 'epidemy of autism' offers fertile ground for v...

Negative capabilities, play and the negative

MedWorm - Mon, 2022-06-13 18:21
Am J Psychoanal. 2021 Jul 19. doi: 10.1057/s11231-021-09307-w. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIn this paper, the author explores and attempts to clarify the roles of negative capability, play and the negative in psychoanalysis. Using clinical material to illustrate what occurs in the consulting room with and without negative capability he discusses why, in his view, it is the indispensable medium for play. Using terminology inspired by Bion, the author explains why he regards the negative as a source of richness for analytic work. He concludes by discussing André Green's "Work on the Negative."PMID:34282260 | DOI:10.1057/s11231-021-09307-w (Source: American Journal of Psychoanalysis)
