The impact of reality on the psychoanalytical treatment and on the work of renunciation of the patient and the analyst.Which realities are involved in the cure?
In this episode Bernard Chervet talks about the impact of reality on psychoanalytic treatment. In light of recent contexts of the global pandemic and upheavals it has caused, Bernard Chervet offers us a theoretical exploration of different notions of reality which confront the analyst. By redefining the terms intrusion, irruption and break-in, and by showing the correlation between internal and external realities, he explains how a traumatic external reality bursting into the treatment re-enacts infantile sexuality from childhood when the difference between the sexes was discovered. He shows us how the analyst, guardian of psychic life, must take all these realities into account in his work with his patients. The analyst must respect and even favour a time of immobilisation and temporary denial linked to a shock without losing sight of resuming the analytical process in a second phase in order to achieve a regeneration of the libido, the very objective of dream work and session work.
Bernard Chervet is a French psychiatrist and psychoanalyst. He lives and works in Paris and Lyon. He is a training psychoanalyst of the Psychoanalytic Society of Paris (SPP), he was a Former President of the SPP. He is a representative on the IPA Board and on the IPA Executive Committee. He is Scientific Director of the Congress of French speaking Psychoanalysts (CPLF), Founder of SPP Editions and he has authored numerous publications in French and international journals. He was the winner of the french Maurice Bouvet Prize in 2018 for his complete works. As the key-note speaker at the CPLF on the theme "Après-coup", he is the author of “Après-coup in Psychoanalysis: The Fulfilment of Desire and Thought” (to be published in 2022 by Routledge). Finally, he is also contributor to the IPA encyclopedic dictionary.

What does a psychoanalyst do in his practice with his patients? How can we define the act of the psychoanalyst at work? It is this vast question that Bernard Penot addresses in this podcast, talking about the act of the psychoanalyst in the service of subjectivation. Referring to Freud's work on transference and then to Lacan's work on the psychoanalytical act during the years of student revolts in France in may 1968, he manages to show us the active involvement of the psychoanalyst in the practice of the cures he provides.
Bernard Penot is a french psychoanalyst. He lives and works in Paris. He has been a full member and training analyst of the Paris Psychoanalytical Society since 1990. As neuropsychiatrist, he was the director of a day hospital for adolescents in Paris for many years. He is the author of several books published in french, and of numerous articles published in the French journal of psychoanalysis and the International journal of psychoanalysis.

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 her work, Teresa Olmos de Paz reflects on some questions and concepts in contemporary psychoanalysis. She emphasizes that the aim of those reflections is to share some ideas among psychoanalysts, because nowadays, no analyst alone can give a global idea of what is considered problematic for contemporary psychoanalysis. Likewise, she highlights the importance of clarifying the concepts facing the diversity of enforced theoretical models in current psychoanalysis.
Teresa Olmos de Paz was born in Córdoba, Argentina. She carried out her psychoanalytic training in Buenos Aires in the 1970’s and has lived in Spain since 1980. She is a training analyst at the Asociación psicoanalítica de Madrid. She has been APM’s president from 2017 till 2019, is a professor at the Institute of Psychoanalysis and was its Director from 2001 to 2003. She is a member of the Forum of Psychoanalysis with adolescents of the European Federation of Psychoanalysis. Among her publications, it should be noted: Structures and / or border states in children, adolescents and adults, together with Carlos Paz and Maria Lucila Pelento. She has published in national and foreign journals, highlighting the International Journal of Psychoanalysis. Together with Carlos A. Paz, she obtained the first prize “Annual Book of Psychoanalysis 1990” with the work: Adolescence and borderline pathology: Characteristics of the relevant psychoanalytic process (Int. J. Psycho-Anal.). She has edited and is co-author of “Los huéspedes del yo. Las identificaciones y desidentificaciones en la clínica psicoanalítica. She is also the Editor and co-author of the book: Los Encuentros de Psicoanalistas de Lengua Castellana.
This text will be read by Andy Cohen and you can listen to it also in the original Spanish, by the voice of the author herself.
