Psychoanalysis and trauma. Talk. Monash Parkville Psychoanalytic Forum

I will try to tell you a story of psychoanalysis and trauma. It will include a number of subplots, including Freud and his encounter with trauma, my encounter with psychoanalysis and my traumas, and my emergent view of a life-trauma paradigm. Such a paradigm assumes that our basic dialectic is life vs. trauma (not life vs. death, as had been thought). In the process, I will indicate some clinical applications of this approach, which applies traumatology in psychotherapy.
