How do recent external and internal changes emerge in the theoretical-technical and clinical understanding of psychoanalysis today? How to think psychoanalytically about the topic of war today more than ever? In this episode entitled External and internal changes in recent times, Mercedes Puchol reflects, among other things, on the impact of these changes in relation to remote analysis, and considers the notion of analysability, originally postulated by Carlos Paz in 1971, to be fundamental for thinking about all the challenges and questions that remote analysis raises. Finally, the author, faced with the level of destruction and pain that the Russian invasion of Ukraine has caused, reflects on the importance of identifications in the "construction of emotional ties  that operate against war (Freud, 1933)".   Mercedes Puchol is a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst.  She lives and works in Madrid with adults, children and adolescents. She is training analyst of the Madrid Psychoanalytical Association (APM) as well as its current President. She is a member of the Organising Committee of the Spanish Language Psychoanalysts Encounters and of the Committee of the European Psychoanalytic Conference for University Students (EPCUS).

Veterans come home from war with shifted personalities, survival guilt after having lost comrades in battle, denial of feelings and shattered selves. A holding environment of safety if they ever had one is lost. How can a clinician gain the veteran’s trust and create the transitional space necessary for therapy that heals? In this podcast we will listen to Andrew Berry’s paper “The Interpersonal Psychoanalytic Approach to Working with Veterans where he takes a view of war veterans from an interpersonal perspective by seeking the deeper psychological meaning of posttraumatic stress disorder or PTSD. Exploring the veterans ‘relationships with others, provides meaning without which healing cannot be attained. Andrew Berry holds a Ph.D., and a Psy.D. in psychology. He practices as a psychologist and psychoanalyst in Niskayuna, New York. He specializes in PTSD and other mental health needs of veterans. He has published on this topic and lectures at analytic institutes, and both national and international conferences. He completed a for year psychoanalytic program from the William Alanson White Institute in New York City in 2012.   Link to the original paper, published in Division Review.

What happens when our basic trust in the world is challenged, and the social dimension of reality is disrupted as a consequence of collective trauma?In this episode, Werner Bohleber addresses the theme of traumatic experiences and does so starting from the two main models around which psychoanalytic thought has sought to understand trauma: the freudian psycho-economic model and the object-relational model.Reflecting on what he so effectively defines as "the symbolic web that carries us", Bohleber considers the implications of man-made disasters, and those that befall our individual and collective memory.   Werner Bohleber, Dr. phil, is a psychoanalyst in private practice in Frankfurt am Main. He is training analyst and former President of the German Psychoanalytical Association. He has long served on committees of the IPA, the last from 2009-2013 as Chair of the IPA Committee on Conceptual Integration. From 1997 to 2017 he was main editor of the journal PSYCHE.  His research subjects and main publication themes are: late adolescence and young adulthood; psychoanalytic theory; transgenerational consequences of the Nazi period and the war on the second and third generation; nationalism, terrorism, anti-Semitism; trauma research. In 2007, he was awarded the Mary S. Sigourney Award for his diverse contributions, especially those relating to the traumatic aftermath of the Holocaust, National Socialism, and World War II.   link to the paper https://docs.google.com/document/d/18yMyiZ6darmN6ouxVoQmUwlci44UCnCQ/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=112457875385152358388&rtpof=true&sd=true   this episode is available also in German   Bibliography Allen, J.

In today’s episode, we’ll listen to Gregorio Kohon’s work on “Monuments and Denials: Creating and Re-creating History”, that follows on from his book on Reflections on the Aesthetic Experience - Psychoanalysis and the Uncanny. It is argued that denials are daily events at all levels of human existence. Denials can also work in a negative way: memories, for example, can create events that might have never occurred; even if not true, mnemic inventions may still make sense and become meaningful. Historical and religious monuments are a case in point. They are political statements which work through denials, not always representing historical “truth”. Gregorio Kohon is a Training Analyst from the British Psychoanalytical Society. He lived in Australia, where he co-founded (together with Valli Shaio Kohon) The Brisbane Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies. He published No Lost Certainties to be Recovered; Reflections on the Aesthetic Experience - Psychoanalysis and the Uncanny, and Considering the Nature of Psychoanalysis. He edited The British School of Psychoanalysis - The Independent Tradition; The Dead Mother - The Work of André Green; and British Psychoanalysis - New Perspectives in the Independent Tradition. He edited, together with Rosine Perelberg, The Greening of Psychoanalysis, and co-authored with André Green, Love and its Vicissitudes. His works have been translated into many languages. He is also a poet and a novelist.    Reflections on the Aesthetic Experience - Psychoanalysis and the Uncanny,Routledge (2015).   This episode is available also in Spanish
