Editorial (Giampaolo Kluzer) / Savca Victor

Abstract: Since I have been invited to this Conference as Chair of the Sponsoring Committee (S.C.) of the Romanian Society of Psychoanalysis Study Group I want to say only a few words of introduction about this Committee2. It is composed of a small number of I.P.A. (International Psychoanalytic Association) members who are appointed by I.P.A. to represent and act on its behalf in a given Country, where an original nucleus of at least four local analysts (that is a Study Group), already trained in the country or abroad, is ready to start its psychoanalytic activity, in collaboration with I.P.A. The goal of the S.C. is to assist and give advice to the Study Group in its progressive growth into a more and more autonomously organized group which will finally enter the International Association as a Component Society.Read more


1 - Changements Minuscules (Jacques André) / Savca Victor

Abstract: Decentralizing psychoanalysis in regard to the older “medical” approach to healing the symptoms features the issue of psychic change. This is certified when the patient goes beyond neurosis, more precisely in borderline pathology. What sort of hope for change may psychoanalysis nourish when the patient’s illness is deeply rooted in his/her early traumas? The Self is a “border being”, the word is accurate when the borderline between the self and the world, between the self and the others is lost. In such case, psychoanalysis is mistaken for a territorial undertaking in which the existential continuity of the analytic site plays an essential role. Read more

2 - Un Paradoxe Du Changement (Brînduşa Orăşanu) / Savca Victor

Abstract: The paper aims to highlight the issue of change taking as landmark the primum movens of the psychoanalytic process. Paradoxically, the setting of the con-ditions conducive to psychic trans-formation brings the phenomenon of narcissistic regression described by Bela Grunberger, with its phantasy of retrieving the ideal ego. In Abraham and Torok's view, such a phantasy seeks unconsciously to change the external world and to keep the topic of psychism unchanged. If narcissistic regression aims at even more than that, namely the spatiotemporal amplification of the internal world of the subject, then, the unconscious corresponding phantasy may be named collectively one of “non-change" because it is opposite to change, although necessary, for its strength in supporting the process Read more


3 - Réponse en miroir, imitation, identification (Maria Rhode) / Savca Victor

Abstract: The imitation phenomenon in the new-born and the use of the reciprocal imitation between the mother and the baby in order to create a bond are explored in the psychoanalytic theory of the mirroring, imitation and identification. The author analyses the clinical material extracted from observing new-born babies and from the therapy conducted with two children, presents a syndrome of autism to light and reaches the hypothesis that developmental imitation involves the perception of a balanced position between the real baby and the internal occupant anticipated by the mother. According to the author, it is precisely in this way that the introjective identification and assimilation become possible, with enriching effects on the sense of identity, that oppose imitation which resorts to some sort of mimicry where the adhesive or projective identification is predominant.

4 - The Change in Psychoanalysis – a Critical and Fertile Reality (Vera Şandor) / Savca Victor

Abstract: The papers draws a few guidelines and pinpoints a few reference points that enable a certain perspective on change in psycho-analytic theory and technique, on extending the therapeutic area and the development of the theory of psychic apparatus functio-nality. Among these factors are the avatars of filiation, the avatars of transmission in psychoanalysis, the predominant focus on certain singular therapeutic factors, the change of pathology, the extention of the psychopathologic area in which the psychoanalytic theory is applied and the social and cultural pressure.

5 - Empathy and Change (Corneliu Irimia) / Savca Victor

Abstract: This paper defines the operations that are involved in the process of empathy in the therapeutic relationship and tries to define the relationship between empathy and the therapist’s countertransference. It noted that empathy - which appears at pre-conscious and conscious level - is related to a non-conflictual field of personality and is still based on projection and introjection, while the counter-transference occurs when a part is connected with the conflict of the therapist’s self.

6 - Some aspects about change in psychoanalysis - How does the patient feel the change? (Georgiana Dobrescu) / Savca Victor

Abstract: The author tries to find some answers to the question: What produces change in psycho-analysis? The reasons patients come in analysis are different and various but no matter what these are, the patient’s conscious and declared purpose is to feel good and not necessarily to change. The change in psycho-analysis is something else meaning it is more than behavior changing and getting rid of symptoms. The author reviews some of the most important contributions about this subject from S. Freud, D. Winnicott, W. Bion and T. Ogden. Also, she presents a vignette from a clinical case. Read more


7 - The Crisis of Psychoanalysis and The Change of The Psychoanalytical Institutions (Vasile Dem. Zamfirescu) / Savca Victor

Abstract: The anniversary of 100 years from the foundation of the International Psycho-analytical Association (I.P.A.), under whose sign the Romanian Society of Psycho-analysis (S.R.P.) holds its conference this year, draws attention to the importance of institutional problems for the development of psychoanalysis. I intend to address especially those particular aspects (con-flicts, repeated splits, the organization of formation) that led to changes within psychoanalytic institutions. I will also review the perspectives of psychoanalytic institutions in the near future. Read more
