    Florence Guignard - The Infantile in Psychoanalytic Practice Today.

    Florence Guignard - The Infantile in Psychoanalytic Practice Today.

    One day, in 1996, with a leap from adjective to noun, a new concept arose within psychoanalytic thought: the Infantile. This term remained so pertinent over time that it has become the core of the title of the 52nd IPA Congress.


    Florence Guignard was the author who first formulated it in such an accomplished form, and in today's episode she draws  important clinical consequences from the theoretical reflection on this concept concerning the analytic relationship and the interpretative activity of the psychoanalyst in their daily work.


    The Infantile -with a capital “I”- is  a limit-concept, which aims at describing a "flexible" structure, at the limits of our animality, at the borders of our Unconscious and our Preconscious system. Being the first and main means of organization of our Ego drives, the Infantile is also the place of our primary fantasies and of the mnemonic traces of our first sensory-motor experiences. It is the most acute point of our emotions and feelings in their non-verbal state.


    Florence Guignard describes how the patient’s Infantile and the analyst’s Infantile are interweaving in the transference-countertransference situation, as beautifully illustrated by Mikael Vilchez artistic creation, enriched by Rhoda Bawdekar’s interpretation of it. Florence Guignard shows us how the Infantile can serve as a lever in the case of blind spots and stopper interpretations.


    A clinical example of a blind spot in the analyst will be published in the second volume of “Psychoanalytic Concepts and Technique in Development. The psychoanalyst in the city”.


    Florence Guignard is a Swiss and French psychoanalyst, Training analyst of the Paris Society and a direct member of the IPA for the Training in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis. She co-founded the European Society for Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis.


    She is an internationally renowned author and since 1970 her work, translated into several languages, notably on female sexuality and the child, has contrìbuted significantly to the renewal of psychoanalytical thought.

    Craig San Roque - Mourning Melancholia and The Echo Effect

    Craig San Roque - Mourning Melancholia and The Echo Effect

    Interpretation of Dreams, by  Rod Moss


     


    Craig San Roque, community  psychologist and psychotherapist has, for the past 30 years lived in Central Australia  working within indigenous Australian circumstances. He has written many careful accounts of the existential realities of intercultural  collaborations and tensions.  Trained in London, with the Society for Analytical Psychology, he cautiously adapts and applies psychoanalytic insights to help negotiate the rough environment of Aboriginal/white Australian relations.

    Mourning Melancholia and The Echo Effect - on  aspects of  unconscious transference within black/white relations -  is distilled from experience in a project co-developed with indigenous friends who are part of the  Central Australian  NPY Women’s Council,  Uti Kulintjaku/Clear Thinking project, initiated by traditional healers (Ngangkari).

    Laura Colombi - The Dangerous Call Of The Wild. Clinical Considerations About Dissociation Into Fantasy.

    In this episode we’ll listen to Laura Colombi talking about the paper titled: “The dangerous call of the wild. Clinical considerations about dissociation into fantasy”.


    Here she discusses how fantasizing, understood as a flight into fantasy, belongs to a type of mental functioning as opposed to that of imaginative fantasy. The Author follows Winnicott’s idea that withdrawal into  fantasy can take on a dissociative quality, which is structured early on as a defensive solution following the loss of hope in object relations.


    Such defence becomes the foundation for a dangerous enclave in which the subject ends up enclosing himself, experiencing an illusory self-sufficiency which is nourished with omnipotence and sensory pleasure.


    From this perspective, the Author suggests that the withdrawal into fantasy must be understood as a risky factor of emptying the Self or of a crystallization into psychopathological structures. This way, it could become an automatic activity of ‘non-thought’ that replaces the working-through processes necessary for the development of the mind.


    Clinical material, omitted in the podcast, of both children and adults will illustrate how the flight into fantasy, over time, may take the form of an anti-relational realm of the mind, compromising the operations necessary for the integration of psychic life.


    Laura Colombi is Training Analyst of the Italian Psychoanalytical Society and Analyst for Children and Adolescents. She has been working  on the educational and theoretical levels on disorders related to the pathology of primitive psychological organization and weaves together interests from the clinic of children and adult patients with severe psychopathology and identity disorders. On the topic of 'dissociation into fantasy' she has published in the International Journal of Psychoanalysis and in the Italian  Psychoanalytic Journal.
