Carlos D. Nemirovsky - Winnicott and Kohut on Intersubjectivity and Complex Disorders.
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.

Marie-Thérèse Khair Badawi - Being, Thinking, Creating.
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.

Irene Ruggiero - Adolescent Dynamics in the Analysis of Adults.
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.

Gohar Homayounpour - Tell Me A Story: Shahrzad “in analysis” in contemporary Persia.
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.
