Rita Teodoru, Editorial

Continuing the series of major themes in psychoanalysis, this issue of the Journal is dedicated to the impasse.

1 - Bogdan Sebastian Cuc, L'impasse de l'élaboration dans la présence de l'actuel

The intrusion of the psychoanalytical settings by the actual brings about a deadlock of the elaboration and of the psychoanalytical process. How are overcome these moments and especially what it means to overcome those moments and continue the development of the psychoanalytical process is a challenge that has no solution, but rather a series of testimonials of essays that allows the psychoanalysts to access various forms of u ...

2 - Daniela Luca, Élaborer l’impasse, l’échec et la réaction thérapeutique négative dans l’analyse des patients narcissiques

100 years of narcissism in psycho- analysis – respective of Sigmund Freud’s “On Narcissism. An Intro- duction”, and other decades of clinical and theoretical thinking, decades marked by Herbert Rosenfeld, Heinz Kohut, Otto Kernberg, André Green, Jean Bergeret, Catherine Chabert, René Roussillon, among others. 100 years configuring the matrix of working on the impasses, disruptions in treatment, analytical errors, on ...

3 - Françoise Coblence, Rêve, échange interanalytique et fin de traitement

Within a free analysis in an institution, the termination of the treatment can prove to be difficult to accomplish. Based on a clinical sequence, I would like to point out how a dream and the inter-analytic exchange around its interpretation have allowed for re- launching the process of elaboration and leaving behind the impasse, as well as the risk of an interminable analysis.

4 - François Richard, Actualité de la méthode fondamentale. Intervention de reconnaissance et fonctionnements limites

In my presentation, I will propose a series of assumptions stemming from my own patient practice and previous research in psychoanalysis. In doing so, I hope to find solutions to situations where I encountered therapeutic impasses in the analytical situation with patients. Beyond the distinctions of neurosis, borderline, psychosis, patients can show their existential difficulties (in other words feeling unable to exist in this ... Read more

5 - Gianina Micu, The institution – the necessary third party that changes the paradigm of the functioning framework in the professional group

While Westerners - English, Dutch, French, Germans, Italians - live, speak and write about "Hate and Love in Psychoanalytic Institutions" (Jurgen Reeders, 004), about fanaticism, schisms and queries on the apparent decline of psychoanalysis , Easterners - and we among them – having gone through their own historical-political metamorphoses, interrogate and self- interrogate, hopeful, to what extent the psychoanalytic institut ...

6 - Stefano Bolognini, Lysis and crisis in overcoming analytic impasses

In this paper some theoretical and clinical issues are explored, about possible conscious choices and uncon- scious trends of the analyst regarding “solutions by crisis” and “solutions by lysis” in the psychoanalytic treatment. While the “crisis-like” solution is frequently represented in classical psychoanalytic literature through an active interpretative attitude by the analyst, the “lysis-like” option is us ...

7 - Andrea Sabbadini, From love to violence

This article focuses on Marius, the protagonist of Everybody in Our Family (Radu Jude, 2012). His personality manifests itself both through his genuine love for his five-year-old daughter Sophia, and through his propensity for suddenly transforming his repressed resentment and conflictual relationship with his ex-wife Otilia into verbal abuse and physical violence. Some attention is also given to the psychological function of ... Read more

8 - Marco Conci, “I Started Becoming Myself Here in Munich... Migration, Psychoanalysis and Identity”

The paper centers on the analytic treatment of a doctoral student, conducted in Munich, in the patient’s and the analyst’s common mother tongue. Far away from her family and her native town, the patient could not feel as free and vital as before; through our analytic work, she could also resume the developmental stages she had missed and eventually move towards the condition of an emotionally responsive, sexually active an ...

9 - Eike Hinze, The dialectics of guilt and guilt feelings

Guilt as a moral category is differ- rentiated from feelings of guilt as a psy- chological category. Psychoanalysts study and try to understand feelings of guilt. The author compares evolutionary and psychoanalytical concepts of the super-ego. In the analysis with an elderly woman with many traumatic events in her life history, different aspects of guilt and feelings of guilt are studied. Confusing the different levels of guil ...

11 - Rodica Matei, Discussion on Elaborating the impasse, the failure and the negative therapeutic reaction in the analysis of narcissistic patients by Daniela Luca

Daniela’s paper carries us to the outer limits of the psychoanalytical field, which are the most prolific ones for research and the progress of knowledge. As the author demonstrates, the impasse itself is the place where the elaboration begins. Starting with Freud`s impasse concerning the psychoanalytical treatment of the individual with narcissistic traits, Daniela smoothly guides us into the narcissistic patients’ world, ... Read more

16 - Daniela Luca, On Landscapes of the Dark. History, Trauma, Psychoanalysis, by Jonathan Sklar

Reading a contemporary psychoanalytic book on trauma, after over 100 years since Freud wrote about it in his personal correspondence with Fliess, is an experience of re-viewing and re-thinking the author’s theoretical background and of re-analysing his clinical cases. It is also an experience of coming in contact again, from so many perspectives, with what individual/collective traumas, traumatic events, and traumatisms mean ... Read more
