By Paul Williams

Metà prigioniero, metà alato: La dissociazione corpo-mente by Riccardo Lombardi

| March 19, 2017 | admin | 0

By Riccardo Lombardi

Le teorie psicoanalitiche, focalizzate sull’interpretazione dei conflitti sessuali, dei significati inconsci o delle dinamiche intersoggettive, hanno sempre manifestato un interesse rapsodico consistent with l. a. relazione corpo-mente. Riccardo Lombardi percorre quindi strade poco transitate, esplorando da più di trent'anni con l. a. competenza del clinico e l. a. passione dello studioso una condizione umana polarizzata tra i limiti corporei (la parte «prigioniera») e l. a. mobilità psichica (la parte «alata»). Il suo terreno elettivo è il protomentale e il protoemozionale, ossia los angeles dimensione presimbolica dove avvengono i processi psicosensoriali primari, e dove los angeles scomparsa del corpo dall’orizzonte di osservabilità della mente determina disarmonie – lo si vede degli adolescenti – o vere e proprie dissociazioni, come accade nelle patologie psicotiche. Quando corpo e mente risultano reciprocamente irraggiungibili e viene compromesso il travaglio trasformativo delle emozioni in pensiero, con conseguente paralisi dell’elaborazione simbolica, according to l’analista si rende necessario innanzitutto recuperare los angeles corporeità assente. Può farlo soltanto se favorisce un doppio transfert all’interno della diade analitica: sul corpo dell'analizzando e su se stesso. Si trova quindi advert affrontare un controtransfert somatico che acuisce in lui una reattività diffusa, in keeping with cui il suo corpo diventa una sorta di «membrana timpanica con finalità riceventi» o un «pentagramma psicosensoriale». Nei numerosi casi clinici qui riportati questo orientamento ha ottenuto importanti risultati terapeutici. Spostare l’angolo prospettico tradizionale, limitando il potere interpretativo e metaforizzante della psicoanalisi, ha permesso di restituire a molti pazienti difficili los angeles fondamentale competenza sul proprio corpo e sulla propria vita.

Le bébé et sa famille : Places, identités et transformations by Denis Mellier,Rose-Angélique Belot,Drina

By Denis Mellier,Rose-Angélique Belot,Drina Candilis-Huisman,Patrice Cuynet,Alberto Eiguer,Didier Houzel,Sylvain Missonnier

Le bébé est un « révolutionnaire », sa naissance bouleverse l’ordre établi. C’est le bébé qui fait los angeles famille, c’est le bébé qui transforme un couple conjugal en parents, qui bouscule l. a. fratrie et crée des grandsparents. Sur lui convergent tous les enjeux de la transmission de los angeles vie entre les générations, passées et présentes, mais aussi toute l’attention de chacun.
Un « berceau psychique familial » s’édifie ainsi sur cet awl, fragile, où le bébé se construit dans ses liens, où les familles redistribuent l. a. « carte d’identité » de leurs membres.
Cette « géographie familiale » est largement mise en reduction (D. Mellier), notamment grâce à l’apport de l’observation du bébé dans sa famille selon E. Bick. Les processus complexes de liaison sont de manière tout à fait nouvelle analysés avec l’idée d’une « tiercéité précoce » (D. Houzel), tandis que los angeles thérapie familiale psychanalytique recueille et soigne les liens en souffrance dans l’ensemble familial (A. Eiguer).
Dés l. a. vie foetale, le « berceau virtuel » (S. Missonnier) devient bien réel pour les mom and dad. Le miroir familial (P. Cuynet) façonne ensuite l’identité du bébé, tandis que les problems psychosomatiques (R.-A. Belot) signalent ses souffrances.
L’accompagnement des mom and dad en scenario de handicap (D. Candilis-Huisman) témoigne aussi de los angeles fragilité de ce berceau très dépendant de l’évolution de nos sociétés.
