Abstract

Karin Fleischer explores the consequences of a collective trauma on the individual psyche. She aims to show the difficulties emerging in the process of working through an early trauma when the personal wound is merged with a family and cultural trauma. Referencing clinical dream material, the author also highlights the importance of including the objective and the subjective levels of analysis, because if the clinical work is solely focused upon the intrapsychic subjective dimension, this may tend to perpetuate the traumatic cycle based on the original denial. This process requires from the analyst sensitivity and receptivity to accept the reality of the collective trauma with all its overwhelming affects, without losing the capacity for imagination; thus, the horror of the non-representable may gradually find – within the analytic dyad – a symbolic way to be retrieved, metabolized, and elaborated.

ABOUT PSYCHOSOCIAL WEDNESDAY

Every Wednesday evening around half past eight, Sigmund Freud gathered colleagues in the waiting room of his Viennese practice at Berggasse 19 to open the world of psychoanalysis to powerful ideas. With his Psychological Club, C.G. Jung created a similar place in Zurich where the inner, often lonely work on the soul could find a balance in the exchange with others. Since 2020, in the form of a digital salon, Psychosocial Wednesday combines the ideas of these two men and provides a space where colleagues from all over the world and different disciplines can exchange their creative works and thoughts among themselves and with a wider audience. In 2023 the series takes its name by heart and explores the process of individuation and freedom after freedom in the 21st century from a psychosocial perspective.
