Articles on Psychoanalytic Interpretation
Special issue in tribute to Roy Schafer.
The teachings of honorary Professor of Psychiatry Daniel Paul Schreber, J.D., to psychiatrists and psychoanalysts, or dramatology's challeng...
The paper addresses the question: How does one read Schreber? Should one read ideas into his text to make sense of it, or should one listen to Schreber's own ideas? Freud read theories into Schreber and so did generations of psychiatric and psychoanalytic readers thereafter, creating...
The use of dreams in the clinical context: convergencies and divergencies: an interdisciplinary proposal.
This paper aims to define some unexpected convergences and foreseeable divergences regarding the conceptualization of dreams and their use as a research tool, specifically in clinical practice with non-neurotic patients. It includes a concise review of different lines of thought on t...
The strange case of the Freudian case history: the role of long case histories in the development of psychoanalysis.

An interpretation of Babette's Feast as a parable of trauma.
I use the film Babette's Feast as a parable to portray the impasse that often arises out of the experience of complex trauma. The experience of such trauma invokes a crisis of reality. It overflows the boundaries of rational containment. There are no mechanisms with which to apprehend such an event,...
First they came... a response to Danielian's "A century of silence".
When theory paints a picture: a clinician reflects on Piera Aulagnier's metapsychology.
The author discusses a patient who, while not frankly psychotic, was prone to states of disintegration marked by fragmented thinking, retreats into extreme isolation, and an idiosyncratic relation to language that manifested in his speaking without seeming to communicate. The analyst...
