January 19, 2024 — Trauma

[49 pages]

In this article, Davies and Frawley update the definition of dissociation in accordance with contemporary research on traumatic states and demonstrate the manifestations and impact of dissociative phenomena in the psychoanalytic treatment of adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Please bring any clinical material that the reading of this article brings to mind.

Lawrence Brown, in Julies Museum links trauma’s destruction of one’s internal thinking-containing capacity with the concretization of thought. His clinical example highlights the importance in these cases of the analyst’s imaginative capacity being crucial for helping their patients begin to think and dream, and to free themselves from the mental captivity of concrete thought. How do you share your imaginative capacity with your patients?
