In this episode Luis Martin Cabré will show the influence that Ferenczi's thinking about the feminine and the child mind (especially in some of his clinical experiences and theoretical intuitions) had on the development of many of the concepts that Winnicott established in psychoanalytic thought, and which have endured to the present day.
Since, as in Winnicott's case, Ferenczi was practically excluded from readings and discussions among analysts for many years, the hypothesis is that psychoanalytic transmission is not only carried out from reflection and theoretical study but also on an unconscious level and transgenerational manner.
Luis Martin Cabré is past President and full member (with didactic functions) at the Asociación Psicoanalítica de Madrid (APM). He is full member of the Italian Psychoanalytic Society (SPI) and an accredited member as a child and adolescent psychoanalyst. He is also a full member of the Spanish Society of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy of Children and Adolescents, Founding member of the International Foundation "Sándor Ferenczi" and member of the European Editorial Board of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis and the American Journal of Psychonalysis. Further to this he is the European Representative on the IPA Board (between 2015-2019) and collaborating member of the Instituto Universitario de Salud Mental - IUSAM.

In this episode, Carlos D. Nemirovsky presents an excerpt from his latest book: “Winnicott and Kohut on Intersubjectivity and Complex Disorders. New perspectives for Psychoanalysis, Psychotherapy and Psychiatry”.
This book suggests that we need conceptualizations that encompass new clinical phenomena observed in present-day patients, considering that the traditional definitions of basic psychoanalytic notions are no longer comprehensive enough, due to the complexity of scientific developments within and beyond the psychoanalytic field.
From this perspective, clinical practice with complex patients can particularly benefit from Winnicott and Kohut’s ideas, for these authors see each patient as unique, and are in direct contact with empirical facts.
Carlos D. Nemirovsky is a Training Analyst, Supervisor and President of the Buenos Aires Psychoanalytic Association. He is Professor of Psychoanalysis at the Institute of Mental Health, Full Member of the IPA and Member of the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy.
