In this episode we’ll present the work of a psychoanalytical peer group. A “peer group” is made up of colleagues who choose to work together to explore a certain topic or to achieve a specific goal.
Sophia Group consists of five members from different republics that emerged after the dissolution of Yugoslavia. The goal of this group is to try to dream in the group and work all material out to be able to hold the group and use it as a container for various experiences that the members of the group have.
In this podcast, one of the members of the group introduces it with general remarks on goals and processes in the group. Next Dr. Giovanni Foresti talks about his experiences with the group as its organizational consultant. Last one to talk is Dr. Paolo Fonda who emphasizes his experiences with the dissolution of the Yugoslavia and war traumas that emerged from it. He also talks about how such groups can serve broader social purpose.
We hope in this way to show how group work can be used to help people overcome their differences and prevent bloody conflicts such as Yugoslavian one, and also trauma healing processes after such events.

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. He is author of numerous articles and books and has published in the APdeBA journal Psychoanalysis, and online in www.aperturas.org and www.psicoterapiarelacional.es.

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.

In this episode Irene Ruggiero explores the developmentof the subjectivation process with the aim of demonstrating how adulthood analysis of adolescent problems that have not been worked through constitutes an essential condition for reopening an unfinished subjectivation process. The re-elaboration of suspended adolescent dynamics in adulthood analysis re-ignites a process of spiral temporality, opening up the possibility of reconsidering both adolescent and childhood experiences in the double temporality established by psychoanalytic listening.
Irene Ruggiero, is a Full Member and Training Analyst of the Italian Psychoanalytical Society and of the International Psychoanalytical Association. She is Secretary of the National Commission for the psychoanalysis of children and adolescents, former Scientific Secretary and President of the Psychoanalytic Center of Bologna. She has actively participated in the scientific life of SPI, IPA and EPF, and is the author of numerous publications in the most important Italian and foreign Journals, as well as in collective volumes. Among her main areas of interest: the adolescence, the body and the analytical relationship. On these topics, she has recently edited two volumes: with Anna Nicolò, "La mente adolescente e il corpo ripudiato"; and, with Nicolino Rossi, "La relazione analitica".

In this episode we will dive with Gohar Homayounpour into the tales of One Thousand and One Nights to bring a new articulation to the female Oedipus complex in contemporary Persia, allowing for the emergence of new possibilities of loving. Through a psychoanalytic textual analysis of the Nights, the author uncovers various archetypes of women that have been extinct from a more mainstream discourse, not only in Iran. The archetypes of Persian women populating Shahrazad’s tales night after night have been lost as sources of female identifications. The paper sets out to tell a story, and within it wishes to re-find a whole and integrated Shahrazad as an object of female identifications.
Gohar Homayounpour is an author and psychoanalyst and member of  the International Psychoanalytic Association, American Psychoanalytic Association, the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, and the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis. She is the Training and Supervising psychoanalyst of the Freudian Group of Tehran, where she is also founder and former director. She has published various psychoanalytic articles and her book, Doing Psychoanalysis in Tehran, published by MIT Press in August 2012, won the Gradiva award and has been translated into French, German, Italian, and Turkish.

Rosine Perelberg suggests that in the Shoah one is confronted with the abolition of the law of the dead father. This refers to the murder of the dead father and the re-establishing of the tyranny of the narcissistic father. Based on her considerable knowledge of the literature on antisemitism, her background in history and social anthropology, as well as her own psychoanalytic writings, Rosine Perelberg advances her thoughts about antisemitism across the ages as well as in current times.

Racism and violence in pandemic times: a psychoanalytical point of view.A conversation between Fakhry Davids and Virginia De Micco
In this episode Fakhry Davids and Virginia De Micco begin with a reflection on the “Black Lives Matter” movement, suggesting a continuity between the inequalities of the past and those involved in societal racism today. They consider how such inequalities are internalized, suggesting that it results in one’s in-group identity being structured as an us-them link with an out-group, in which projective processes are heavily involved. Does the increased sense of vulnerability during times of pandemic produce greater pressure to project fear, danger, or ‘evil’ into the racial others – just at a time when their greater vulnerability is more evident?
Fakhry Davids, is a Training and Supervising Analyst of British Society, a member of the International Research Group Geographies of Psychoanalysis, a Board Member of PCCA (Partners in Confronting Collective Atrocities, www.p-cca.org) and Member of the Holmes Commission for Racial Equality, American Psychoanalytic Association.

He directed for 8 years the «Revue Française de Psychanalyse» and was for 4 years the President of the Paris Psychoanalytical Society. He has collected a long experience as psychoanalyst in a day hospital for young children, some of whom was autistic. His interest in the death drive comes to him both from the experience of the psychic conflictuality and from his deepening of the specifically autistic problematic, in line with the contributions of Tustin and of Meltzer. He has also worked with Benno Rosenberg, conceiving drive fusion and defusion in their movements in neurosis, in borderline states as well as in psychosomatic states where the somato-psychic balance is disturbed.

In today’s episode Fred Bush will speak about his new paper: Self-Criticism as a Lifeline.  Thanks to his clinical vignettes and to his sharp description of the mechanisms that rule the need for self criticism, he will lead us to discover a kind of patient that is different from the one that generally manifest a sense of guilt and melancholia.
