Talks On Psychoanalysis



Monday Jul 25, 2022

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.

    “NOTAS SOBRE SILENCIO Y CONTRATRANSFERENCIA” ¿Cómo trabajamos con los pacientes no neuróticos en la actualidad? ¿Cómo llegar a las profundidades del conflicto inconsciente por el que sufren estos pacientes? Algunas respuestas podemos escucharlas en este trabajo en el que Valle Laguna, basándose en su experiencia clínica con pacientes graves, desarrolla la idea de que en determinadas patologías, durante cierto tiempo el silencio y otras manifestaciones no verbales son un elemento base de la comunicación del paciente y para el analista los puntos de partida para captar los conflictos inconscientes de aquel. La autora considera así, el silencio y otros elementos no verbales, como la vía de expresión evolutiva e hilo conductor de la  patología mental, los conflictos inconscientes, y el desarrollo de la transferencia. Silencios que a su vez tienen diferentes significaciones y funciones a lo largo del análisis. Asimismo, estudia el silencio del analista incidiendo en la importancia de la espera, la observación, el trabajo de la contratransferencia, así como en las interpretaciones no pronunciadas.   Mª del Valle Laguna Barnes Es psicóloga clínica, psicoanalista con función didáctica de la Sociedad Española de Psicoanálisis (SEP) en la que realiza análisis, supervisiones y seminarios a analistas en formación. Ha sido presidenta de la Sociedad Española desde 2016 a 2020. Pertenece al Grupo que la Sociedad Española tiene en Andalucía y reside en Sevilla donde ejerce la práctica privada. Ha publicado en “Temas de Psicoanálisis”, la revista online de la Sociedad Española, varios artículos, entre ellos: Vivencia del futuro en la edad media de la vida, Sobre la Transferencia idealizada: expresión, funciones y niveles en el proceso analítico y Transmisión transgereracional y situaciones traumáticas.

In this episode, Marie-Thérèse Khair Badawi presents her paper: “Being, Thinking, Creating: When War Attacks the Setting and the Transference Counter-Attacks”. This text, published in 2011 concerning the attack of the psychoanalytical setting in war conditions, has revealed the interest of many psychoanalysts during the Covid-19 pandemic which attacks also the setting. The questioning trying to find an issue in a situation of war where the psychoanalysts and their patients are facing the same trauma against the unpredictable which attacks the invariance of the setting, seems to be a similar problematic in these two traumatic states and … even maybe to many others! Marie-Thérèse Khair Badawi PHD, is Training Analyst of the International Psychoanalytical Association, member of the European Psychoanalytical Federation, of the Paris Psychoanalytical Society, co-founder and first President of the Lebanese Association for the Development of Psychoanalysis, the first IPA study group in an Arab speaking country. She is Professor Researcher at Saint-Joseph University of Beirut. Author of numerous publications translated from French to several languages among which one german translation was selected and many published in the Revue Française de Psychanalyse and the International Journal of Psychoanalysis.  She has studied in depth themes on war, trauma, incest and sexuality, specially female sexuality and sexual identity. Her PHD thesis  "Le désir amputé”  published at L'Harmattan, Paris, 1986,  is considered by UNESCO as one of the first reliable studies on female sexuality in the Middle East.    This text has been published in ten different languages and the version you can listen to in the podcast has been reduced for privacy reasons. For a complete reading of the paper please refer to: Badawi, M.-T.
