Transgenerational Trauma (Part I)

Author: Silvia Prosquill (TVP)

(Until next Wednesday, the author will be available in the forum to answer your questions!)

“Trauma is contagious“, states Judith Herman pointing towards the relationship between mental illness and how it is structurally passed on within different types of relationships. Freud already addressed the transgenerationally transmitted emotional processes in his book “Totem and Taboo”. He argues that

Author: Miriam Kreis

Even Leon Eisenberg, who discovered ADHD, is said to have regretted how much he helped to rise and develop ADHD at his deathbed. Rather than focusing on neuropathology, it is necessary to examine the psychosocial circumstances of the children.

We put psychoanalysis in Belgium under the magnifying glass.

I would like to give my sincere thanks to Johan De Groef and the psychoanalytic community in Belgium.

The development of psychoanalysis in Belgium is closely tied to the country’s complex history and diversity. Sigmund Freud himself once visited Brussels on his way to Paris, and describes the cosmopolitan city as follows:

[...] Moving on, I soon came to the Rue Royale and now a find followed the others, the monument of Egmont and Horn was the most beautiful."

Author: Gabriella Papadia

Dalla dissoluzione del complesso edipico allo sviluppo di diversi stili di attaccamento.

Esiste un aneddoto nella vita del Maestro che racconta l’origine del complesso edipico; si narra, infatti, che quando era piccolo il padre Jacob gli raccontò che all’età di dieci anni un uomo si rivolse a lui esclamando “Giù dal marciapiede ebreo!”, allora Sigmund chiese al padre come avesse reagito e Jacob rispose “...
