NUOVO LIBRO "ESSERE NELLA CURA"  

 

 

Autori: Giacomo Di Marco, Isabella Schiappadori

Editore: Frenis Zero

Collana: Confini della Psicoanalisi

Anno di pubblicazione: 2019

Pagine: 210

ISBN: 978-88-97479-17-8

Dalla presentazione degli Autori: <<La cura introduce nella storia della persona un processo di identificazione che trae vita da ciò che fa: l’atto della cura ci appartiene  e s’incontra con le persone a cui è destinato. In questo moto di identificazione sul quale si fonda la natura della relazione, avviene un processo per cui tratteniamo nel nostro mondo psichico e nell’orizzonte della nostra mente le varie modulazioni del prendersi cura. Esse ci aiutano a pensare i valori impliciti nella relazione di cura, specialmente quando la consideriamo nel passaggio dal piano della possibilità alla dimensione spazio-temporale dell’esistenza e della realtà attuale, nei modi in cui possiamo realizzarla.

In questi ultimi anni dominati da una sorta di ecumenismo psichiatrico, che ha favorito la retorica del dialogo a tutti i costi tra i vari modelli, e ha comportato il fiorire di derive e derivati che hanno svuotato di senso l’agire psichiatrico, ci pare indispensabile sostenere con forza il nostro punto di vista. Non possono essere efficaci le pratiche che non si fondano sul rispetto della soggettività del paziente e dell’operatore. Tenere in conto la soggettività è il fondamento di ogni discorso psicologico e psichiatrico.

Il privilegio, che questo testo attribuisce al “saper essere nella cura”, rappresenta una risposta, un contributo, nella sua parzialità, per ribadire con convinzione la centralità della dimensione relazionale  nel curare.  Pensiamo che la cura possa recuperare visibilità, rispetto e credibilità, se si rinuncia sempre più all'illusione di guarire  e si scopre il piacere di curare, nel duplice aspetto di sentirsi in grado di “funzionare” terapeuticamente  e di offrire alla soggettività sofferente  forme di integrazione evolutiva.>>

A cura di Giuseppe Leo & Giuseppe Riefolo

Scritti di:   Efrat Ginot  Jay R. Greenberg  Jessica Kraus, Giuseppe Leo, Giuseppe Riefolo,   Jeremy D. Safran

Editore: Frenis Zero

Collana: Confini della Psicoanalisi

Anno di pubblicazione: 2019

Pagine: 326

ISBN: 978-88-97479-15-4

Il libro è dedicato a Jeremy Safran ed a Lewis Aron, eminenti figure di psicoanalisti, recentemente scomparsi, che hanno dedicato pionieristici contributi all’argomento dell’”enactment”. Come ha scritto Safran, sebbene l’enactment sia un concetto problematico e fonte di confusione tra i differenti approcci, esso può conferire alla psicoanalisi, il cui stato di disciplina ‘liminale’ cioè al confine con altre non sempre ad essa epistemologicamente commensurabili (neuroscienze, infant research, antropologia culturale, ecc.), una significativa fonte di vitalità. Il libro esplora il tema dell’”enactment” in relazione a tali confini o aree di transizione, specie nell’introduzione di Giuseppe Leo che ne analizza la genesi storica ed il ruolo di concetto-ponte tra psicoanalisi e psichiatria, tra psicoanalisi e neuroscienze, tra psicoanalisi e pratiche trans-culturali ed esplorandone altresì la valenza trans-generazionale. Jay Greenberg nel suo capitolo discute le varie modalità di partecipazione dell’analista per cui, sebbene un certo grado di azione e ‘mutualità’ possa essere considerato espressione di un modo  meno formalizzato di interazione coll’analizzando,   molte delle vignette cliniche maggiormente influenti nella letteratura contemporanea sottolineano una maggiore tendenza del clinico ad assumersi dei rischi, cosa che però richiede una discussione critica ed attenta ai confini del setting. Giuseppe Riefolo nel suo capitolo, utilizzando vignette cliniche provenienti da setting differenti (psicoanalitico, psichiatrico nel servizio pubblico) esplora un percorso che dall’azione (concepita come qualcosa che impedisce il processo analitico in quanto antitetico rispetto al ricordare ed al rielaborare nelle prime formulazioni teoriche) passa per la relazione (per cui l’enactment diventa un processo e non più solo un evento) fino ad una concezione dell’enactment come espressione di una conoscenza relazionale implicita incarnata che può essere condivisa tra analista e paziente per produrre nuove configurazioni terapeutiche. Nel loro capitolo Safran e Kraus, pur nella consapevolezza che le rotture dell’alleanza terapeutica, le ‘impasse’ e gli ‘enactment’ siano inevitabili, illustrano il loro programma di ricerca che è stato formalizzato in una metodologia di formazione per gli psicoterapeuti volta ad individuare e ad affrontare costruttivamente tali eventi potenzialmente portatori di un esito terapeutico negativo. Infine Efrat Ginot nel capitolo conclusivo espone come, rispetto all’’enactment’ ed all’empatia, sia le osservazioni cliniche che la recente ricerca neuroscientifica forniscano sempre nuove evidenze su ciò che accomuna piuttosto che solo su ciò che  distingue tali due processi intersoggettivi.Un video riassume le tematiche del libro Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deyhMirpeoY

NUOVO NUMERO ON-LINE SULL'AUTENTICITA' IN PSICOANALISI

 

L'ultimo numero di Frenis Zero (n.32, anno 16, giugno 2019) è tutto in inglese, si intitola "AUTHENTICITY IN PSYCHOANALYSIS" ed è dedicato alla memoria di Lewis Aron e di Jeremy Safran.  

Il tema dell'autenticità è svolto nei contributi di Giuseppe Leo, "ENACTMENT AND BOUNDARIES IN PSYCHOANALYSIS", e di Giuseppe Riefolo "From action to Relationship. Enactment as a Process", tratti dal libro da loro curato "Enactment in Psychoanalysis",  in relazione all'enactment, che impone di vedere la psicoterapia, in un'ottica bi-personale, più come un'improvvisazione che come un "canovaccio" preordinato. Al tema dell'improvvisazione si lega il contributo di Heather Ferguson "Reflections of a Rock 'n' Roll Drummer-Analyst", in cui l'analista newyorchese, anche percussionista, analizza le analogie tra la struttura del linguaggio musicale, specie jazz/rock, e quella della seduta psicoanalitica. Il testo di Chin Li "PRESENCE AND LINGERING: PSYCHOANALYSIS IN A MINDFULNESS FRAME" cerca di pensare insieme la psicoanalisi e la "mindfulness" riconoscendo il debito che in tale riflessione si deve a Jeremy Safran. Un articolo speciale è quello di Massimiliano Sommantico "THE DEAD SIBLING: a family secret and its consequences" in cui l'analista napoletano, prendendo spunto da una vignetta clinica di una psicoterapia familiare, sottolinea l'importanza delle tematiche dell'odio e della rivalità che caratterizzano i legami tra fratelli.

Per la sezione dedicata alla psicoanalisi in relazione alle neuroscienze vi proponiamo l'articolo di Kate Mehuron "Memory reconsolidation: Hope for a Terminal Analysis?". In questo articolo l'autrice si rifa ad alcune ricerche neuroscientifiche sulla memoria per cercare un supporto alla tesi, sostenuta da differenti psicoanalisti, secondo cui la relazione terapeutica, grazie anche alla freudiana "Nachträglichkeit", permette, attraverso la ricontestualizzazione ed una nuova narrazione delle memorie traumatiche, la scoperta da parte del paziente che il "qui ed ora" è differente dal "lì ed allora".

Following the issue of the book "Enactment in Psychoanalysis" (Eds. Giuseppe Leo & Giuseppe Riefolo), dedicated to Lewis Aron and Jeremy Safran, we would like to dedicate to them this on-line issue of our journal.The subject of authenticity is developed both in Giuseppe Leo's paper "ENACTMENT AND BOUNDARIES IN PSYCHOANALYSIS" and in Giuseppe Riefolo's "From action to Relationship. Enactment as a Process", two excerpts from the editors' chapters of the book, referred to enactment, which allows to consider psychotherapy, in a bi-personal point of view,   as improvisation rather than as scripted performance.  To the subject of improvisation refers also the paper ""Reflections of a Rock 'n' Roll Drummer-Analyst" by Heather Ferguson, in which the NY analyst, a rock drummer too, analyses analogies between the structure of musical language, especially jazz/rock, and the one of psychoanalytic session. The paper by Chin Li "PRESENCE AND LINGERING: PSYCHOANALYSIS IN A MINDFULNESS FRAME" is an attempt to think about psychoanalysis and mindfulness together, recognizing the debt to Jeremy Safran's contribution to such a reflection. A special article is "THE DEAD SIBLING: a family secret and its consequences" by Massimiliano Sommantico: taking a cue from a clinical vignette of family psychotherapy, the author highlights the relevance of the dynamics of hate and rivalry characterizing sibling links. 

In the section concerning psychoanalysis and neuroscience the paper by Kate Mehuron "Memory reconsolidation: Hope for a Terminal Analysis?" refers to some neuroscientific investigations on memory to support the author's claim, shared by other psychoanalysts, that therapeutic relationship, thanks to Freudian "Nachträglichkeit", allows patient, through re-contextualization and re-telling of traumatic memories, to recognize that "the here and now" is no longer the "there and then".


 

 

 

 

5) We  are glad to announce the issue of the last book  published in English by Edizioni Frenis Zero: "ENACTMENT IN PSYCHOANALYSIS" edited by Giuseppe Leo and Giuseppe Riefolo, writings by Efrat Ginot, Jay R Greenberg, Jessica Kraus, Jeremy D Safran. Collection "Borders of Psychoanalysis", Frenis Zero publisher, Lecce 2019, pp.326.

 

 

The book is dedicated to Jeremy Safran and Lewis Aron, whose recent  loss drove the editors as well as the publisher to gather these contributions about enactment, a topic to whom Safran and Aron devoted many papers of theirs. As Safran wrote, though problematic and source of confusion among different psychoanalytic approaches, the epistemological status of psychoanalysis, related to its condition of ‘liminality’, is a meaningful source of vitality for the discipline. The book explores the subject of enactment in relation to boundaries in psychoanalysis, referring to a series of viewpoints that lead to many crucial areas.

6) We  are glad to announce the issue of the book  published in English by Edizioni Frenis Zero:"INFANT RESEARCH AND PSYCHOANALYSIS" edited by Giuseppe Leo, writings by Beatrice Beebe, Karlen Lyons-Ruth, Jeremy P. Nahum, Elisabet Solheim, Colwyn Trevarthen, Edward Z. Tronick, Lauriane Vulliez-Coady. Collection "Borders of Psychoanalysis", Frenis Zero publisher, Lecce 2018, pp.273.

 

 

This book has the hard task to cover an interdisciplinary area in which psychoanalysis has to deal with infant research. The development of infant research methodologies is illustrated in the present book by the contribution written by Beatrice Beebe, whose ‘journey’ leads us through the ‘creating’ of a discipline with its creators, her traveling companions, such as Daniel Stern, Frank Lachmann, Joseph Jaffe and many others. Trevarthen’s chapter is a discussion of his work with T. Berry Brazelton, passed away on March 2018. Brazelton used his trust and enjoyment of innocent company to greet a newborn infant as a friend, and he showed that the baby is read to share friendship with mother and father, giving them joy. Brazelton’s belief in innate human nature transformed pediatric care and early diagnosis of developmental disorders, guiding treatment, not ‘of’ the baby, but ‘with’ him/her as an individual with unique expressions of vitality. The last two chapters, instead, deal with clinical implications of infant research. Tronick’s contribution focuses on mother-infant dyad as well as on analyst-patient one, conceived as open dynamic systems, capable of meaning making, in which coherence is at best imperfect, and coordination alternates with mismatching. In open dynamic systems messiness itself is inherent to the process of meaning making because of limitations in their capacity, «their different time scales, the many polymorphs of meaning that have to be integrated, and because of the many kinds of meaning making processes» (including affective, cognitive, memorial, linguistic, bodily and psychodynamic meaning making processes, such as a dynamic unconscious, projective identification and transference). «Dyadic states of consciousness» Tronick writes in the chapter «are joint creations and, as such, bring together the messy, unpredictable and inchoate features of two individuals’ state of consciousness, not just the messiness of one». But meaning meaning processes and security making ones, though normally overlapping each other, are not the same, and this heterogeneity between motivational systems (Lichtenberg et al., 2011) can cover the heterogeneity of psychopathological conditions. Lyons-Ruth and colleagues’ chapter is focused on the representational world of the mother, particularly on the assessment of mother’s representation of role-confusion in her relation with her child. The authors call attention to the dimension of sexualisation in the relationship, a high indicator of role-confusion. This emerging body of work points to the importance of being alert to indicators of role-confusion in the clinical setting. The findings can inform and enrich counselling and psychology practice by familiarizing clinicians with how to listen for indicators of role-confusion while talking with parents about their relationship with the child.

The collection “Mediterranean Id-entities” is devoted to publish books in order to investigate the role of Mediterranean cultures from a psychoanalytic point of view, in front of the anthropological transformations concerning human societies and social institutions in the contemporary world. This book has the hard task to cover an interdisciplinary area in which psychoanalysis has to deal with fundamentalism as a social phenomenon and therefore with ‘bordering’ disciplines (such as religion history, transcultural studies, cultural anthropology) often with epistemologies that for origin and history appear to be incomparable to it. Lene Auestad intends to integrate the psychological analysis of the subject with its social embedding. She investigates the importance of the social unconscious and its effects on the prejudiced intentions of the individual apart from its own active interpretations. She highlights the importance the psychoanalytical approach provides in understanding the unspoken, unconscious contents of the social phenomena and how much the socially critical approach is able to enrich the analytical view which merely focuses on the subject regarding the effects of the social consensus. While Auestad’s scrutiny aims at the social convention’s role as an agent affecting the individual’s deeds and thinking, Linden West’s contribution draws on ‘psycho-social’ understandings, combining psychoanalysis and critical theory, as well as the work of John Dewey, to interrogate Islamic fundamentalist groups in a post-industrial city. It explores processes of self-recognition in groups and paranoid-schizoid modes of functioning, in which unwanted parts of self and of culture are split off and projected on to the other. The world is correspondingly divided into good and bad, pure and impure. John Dewey makes a crucial distinction between processes of democratic education and closed groups, which is what fundamentalist groups are, by reference to the quality of relationship to the other, and to experiential and narrative openness. However, it is also suggested that fundamentalism is ordinary, in that each of us can feel out of our depth, at times, and we may grab at ideas promising truth and nothing but the truth, which is ultimately illusion. Except not everyone reaches for a Kalashnikov, which is where individual biographies matter for subtler understanding of difference within commonalities. Fundamentalism has increasingly become a part of the political discourse in Western countries and is to a large degree associated with Islamic Jihadism. Fundamentalism has, however, been a concern in all religions, and Werner Bohleber in this book discusses its connections with violence in monotheistic religions. Fundamentalism is also a concern in professional organisations and in this book Sverre Varvin discusses the relation between fundaments for a science and fundamentalism in psychoanalysis. This is related to general trends of fundamentalism in religious and political contexts. A central question is how adherence to fundamentals, understood at basic principles for a profession or a religious-political movement, may develop into fundamentalism and how this may develop into more violent forms. Psychoanalytic understanding of mass psychology and unconscious processes at group levels are developed in this book by each of the outstanding authors in order to understand present Islamic and other forms of fundamentalist movements in the European context.

11) "NEUROSCIENCE AND PSYCHOANALYSIS", G. Leo (ed.), prefaced by Georg Northoff, writings by  David Mann, Allan N. Schore, Robert Stickgold, Bessel A. Van Der Kolk, Grigoris Vaslamatzis, Matthew P. Walker, Collection "Psychoanalysis and Neuroscience", Frenis Zero Publisher, Lecce 2014, pp.300, € 49,00.

The book gathers some papers concerning the dialogue between neuroscience and psychoanalysis. Following the Introduction written by Georg Northoff, concerning the possibility of overcoming the highly impasse generating contraposition between localizationism and holism, G. Vaslamatzis deals with a “Framework for a new dialogue between psychoanalysis and neurosciences”. In this chapter the author describes three points of epistemological congruence: firstly, dualism is no longer a satisfactory solution; secondly, cautions for the centrality of interpretation (hermeneutics); and, thirdly, the self-criticism of neuroscientists. David W.Mann in his contribution “The mirror crack’d: dissociation and reflexivity in self and group phenomena” tries to show how reflexive processes generate each of three levels of the human system (self, relationships, group) and integrate them one to another, while dissociative processes tend throughout to pull them apart. Health and illness within the self, the relationship and the group can be understood as special states of the dynamic equilibria between these cohesive and dispersive trends. In “Sleep, memory and plasticity” Matthew P. Walker and Robert Stickgold outline a review of the researches following the discovery of rapid eye movement (REM) and non-REM (NREM) sleep, and specifically of those that began testing the hypothesis that sleep, or even specific stages of sleep, actively participated in the process of memory development. The last two chapters, “Clinical implications of neuroscience research in PTSD” by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk, and “Dysregulation of the right brain: a fundamental mechanism of traumatic attachment and the psychopathogenesis of PTSD” by Allan N. Schore, demonstrate how the psychopathology of traumatic conditions can be a fertile field of dialogue between neuroscience and psychoanalysis.

Works in Progress Seminar:  A Courageous Trip by First Responders to Puerto Rico Following Hurricane Maria in September 2017

We were 3 doctors and 6 nurses. What we found was chaos - roads destroyed, electricity gone, clean water unavailable, medical care unavailable, education unavailable.  No one was helping the local population.  We were not to drink water from the tap.  There were broken water mains, broken sewers, diarrhea, parasitic infections.  The rule was to drink only bottled water.  Clean your teeth only with bottled water.  Spray with DEET to kill the mosquitos and other insects.

We divided  into 2 teams - one for San Juan and one for Arecibo, towns on the North coast of Puerto Rico.   Each day we worked to exhaustion.  Lost count of the number of patients.  Diabetes, hypertension, depression, anxiety.   Our morale and esprit de corps was high.  We realized that our efforts were inadequate and that a huge amount of work needed to be done.  Most of us came back to Puerto Rico several times.

We learned how poverty affected medical insurance in Puerto Rico and how Puerto Rico's bankruptcy and political relationship with the U.S. government made the island vulnerable to natural disasters.

Two diverse approaches to writing a psychoanalytic biography of an artist will be described. A focus on unconscious fantasy as a means of unraveling enigmas in Alberto Giacometti's life characterized the first approach. Close attention to the artist's behavior and the stylistic development of a signature style were crucial in making sense of Louise Nevelson's work and life.

Extension Program:  The Interpersonal Approach to Working with Veterans 
Typically, when a veteran comes for psychotherapy for PTSD and related trauma, the PTSD is in the foreground of treatment, with everything else in the background. In the interpersonal approach, relationships, and how PTSD affects them, are in the foreground, with everything else in the background. In interpersonal treatment, attachment issues and relationships, along with the impact of PTSD on them, are prioritized. Clinical inquiries into the veteran's brothers and sisters on the battlefield are emphasized as early as the initial intake as is change in the veteran's relationships before and after battle. The focus of the clinical work is characteristically on how relationships with people in positions of authority developed prior to treatment. And new relationship development results from trust in the process and the re-parenting that may occur within it. 

2.5 CME/CE credits offered.

Please join us for a reception preceding the lecture from 7:15 - 8:00 pm.
For years psychoanalysts have been so invested in proving that psychoanalysis is a science that they have all but forgotten that it is an art of a kind.  There have been many attempts to tease apart creative and scientific aspects of psychoanalysis.  Bowlby famously made a distinction between "the art of psychoanalytic therapy and the science of psychoanalytic psychology." Is such separation possible?  Is it useful?  This panel will discuss different aspects of creativity in everyday psychoanalytic work.  Dr. Shapiro will consider various definitions of creativity and explore their applicability to art and psychoanalysis.  He will investigate the use of the psychoanalytic setting as a creative integrative opportunity to facilitate the treatment.  Dr. Marcus will take up the issue of creativity in science and apply these thoughts to creativity and science in psychoanalytic work and research. The claim will be made that psychoanalytic work is inherently creative and can be scientific. Examples from dream interpretation with patients and use of dreams in social science research will be used to illustrate his ideas. Dr. Mirkin will discuss the transformative role of creativity in therapeutic action of psychoanalysis.  She will outline the analyst's contribution - the analyst's own creativity - to the treatment and suggest that the development of the patient's creative capacity is a measure of the progress of the treatment.  The panelists will engage in discussion amongst themselves and with the audience to further our understanding of these complex issues.

2 CME/CE credits offered.

Works in Progress Seminar:  Formations in the Body of Psychoanalysis

Can we say there is a unique psychoanalytic concept of the body? What role do the ideas of the maternal and paternal body play in the development of psychoanalytic theory and practice? How does the psychoanalytic clinic account for the body - its diverse forms, expressions, identities, etc. -in its approaches to and treatments of neurosis and psychosis? In this presentation, Dr. Yusin will attempt to deepen our understanding of the body by exploring the ways it is linked to formations of symptoms and symptomatic acts. She will consider together Jacques Lacan's proposition of the 'sinthome', a non-pathological symptom that has a function analogous to art, and Freud's lifelong work on the symptom as a metaphor for an unconscious conflict. This presentation will also therefore address the possibilities of a psychoanalytic concept of the body in the study and teaching of psychoanalysis today.

No CME or CE credits offered.
