What is the role of external reality in the formation of traumatic experiences? And how much does this still determine the overcoming of the profound dysphoria that affects certain individuals?
With a highly personal and original view on the functioning of the mind from a psychoanalytic perspective, Marion Oliner accompanies us in this episode through a reflection on the impact of catastrophic events on the lives of individuals and th eir descendants.
Through her voice we will encounter Diderot, Proust and Baudelaire, Grubrich-Simitis and Winnicott; the tragedy of Nazism and the memorable beauty of the vineyards along the Rhine.
Marion M. Oliner has been active in her private practice, teaching, supervising, as a speaker, and as a member of many committees, as well as in the governance of the New York Freudian Society. She is a member of the International Psychoanalytic Association and on the faculty of the New York Freudian Society, the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis, and the Metropolitan Institute for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
This episode is inspired by the book published in 2018 by Routledge, titled: "Psychoanalytic Studies on Dysphoria: The False Accord in the Divine Symphony".
