Portrett bilde av Doris Brothers and Jon Sletvold

This presentation is largely based on a recent article published in Ricerca Psicoanalitica, entitled, “The Embodiment of ‘Us and Them’: Fascist Experience in a Traumatized World.” Deeply concerned about the rise of ultra-nationalism and the ascendance of authoritarian leaders in the western world, we came to feel that a great deal of what we called “fascist experience” had infiltrated our lives and those of our patients. We find support for our view that vulnerability to the us-them binary of fascist experience pervades our world in Wilhelm Reich’s masterful and prescient book, The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933/1942). He suggests that “. . . there is not a single individual who does not bear the elements of fascist feeling and thinking in his structure.“

    Workshop: When Psychoanalytic Theory Meets the Body

    24. september 2021 25. september 2021

    When Psychoanalytic Theory Meets the Body: Re-envisioning, Transference, Repression/Dissociation and Resistance

    A 2-Day Workshop by Jon Sletvold and Doris Brothers

    Place: Norsk Karakteranalytisk Institutt; Gjerdrums vei 19, 0484 Oslo
    Time: Friday 09:30 – 16:00 | Saturday from 09:30 – 15:00

    In this workshop we bring the body-based perspective we are developing in our forthcoming book, Talking Bodies, to some of the most enduring aspects of psychoanalytic theory. The result is not only that the theory changes, but also that practice, training and supervision are re-envisioned. A central theme that runs through our work is that mind, from birth on, involves the creation of narratives based on embodied memories.

    We will intersperse verbal dialogues with embodied exercises throughout and provided opportunities for embodied supervision.

    Main topics

    A Body-Based View of Transference

    Ever since Freud’s earliest efforts to develop his theory of transference, memory has played a key role. Narratives, and the embodied non-verbal memories on which they are based, are central to a new understanding of transference. When viewed from the perspective of the ever-changing memories of both patient and therapist, transference is seen as a shifting flow of I, you, we and world. We propose that it is only in the context of trauma that transferences become rigidified.

    A Body-Based View of Repression/Dissociation

    Freud’s earliest attempt to deal with gaps in his patients’ verbal narratives gave rise to his concept of repression, which he regarded as the cornerstone of his entire theory.  In the 1890s he believed that patients’ memories of actual traumas that were too painful or embarrassing to be kept in conscious awareness were dissociated and replaced by symptoms. In 1897 he renounced his trauma theory and proposed that memories were repressed because they were associated with conflictual forbidden sexual impulses. In recent years dissociation has largely replaced repression. However, from a body-based perspective, dissociation exists only to the extent that pertains to traumatic memories that cannot be given verbal expression. When embodied memories are viewed as always present what has been called the dissociation-enactment model is profoundly changed.

    A Body-Based View of Resistance

    What makes therapeutic change so difficult? We propose that the freedom to change can be terrifying. When trauma is viewed from a body-based perspective it becomes clear that what has been called resistance often involves fear of losing one’s connections to all that is needed for one’s psychological well-being. When efforts are made to deepen the we-connectedness of patient and therapist, the fear of change is reduced for both therapeutic partners as a feeling of safety to experience all emotions develops. Illustrative clinical examples will be presented.
