Claudio Neri - Vitality, Vitalism and Shame.

In this episode, Claudio Neri presents his article on "Vitality, Vitalism and Shame". Through a rich narrative, ranging from the memory of his encounter with Bion, to ethnopsychological studies on expressions of anger or joy, to the Myth of Anteo that shows the importance of contact with a safe and revitalizing object, Claudio Neri raises two questions: how can we distinguish natural vitality from exasperated vitalism? And what role does shame play in this presenting itself to others without the armor of one's own defenses?

If enthusiasm is contagious, it is possible, however, to observe how sometimes some individuals may not tolerate being close to a vital subject.  The contagion effect, which emanates from the enthusiastic person, in fact puts them at risk of losing their balance. People who are depressed or very controlling, for example, may feel that the enthusiasm activates an aspect of themselves that they must strictly keep at bay.

What should the psychoanalyst finally do when the shame and the parade of embarrassment and fear are so intense as to prevent one of his patients from approaching vitalizing experiences?
