February 16, 2024 — Hysteria / Psychosomatic States

Presenter: Babak Roshanaei-Moghaddam, MD

[32 pages]

This course would be incomplete without making connections between early life trauma, deficits in the capacity to mentalize, symbolically represent, and reflect on internal psychic experience, and the expression of psychic phenomena through bodily experience and illness.

Anita Weinreb in, Healing the Split Between Body and Mind: Structural and Developmental Aspects of Psychosomatic Illness, follows the analytic journey of two women with multiple somatic problems. They discover and examine how their bodies became the vehicle into which unprocessed feelings had been emptied and how with treatment helped them to develop the ability to verbally represent their experience, contain it, and reflect upon it, thereby revealing the underlying conflicts and functions embedded in their previous somatic expression.

Trevor Lubbe’s Diagnosing a Male Hysteric gives readers a detailed clinical account of a patient who uses sex as a defense against fears of separation and exclusion to compensate for early developmental deficits.
