Jean Goodwin, MD
Sequelae of Massive Trauma
Based on Kay Souter’s psychohistorical examinations, Bion’s theories were informed by his horrific experiences as a teenage tank commander during World War I. Bion not only described how trauma affects the psyche through attacks on thinking and linking, he also applied his insights to the infant-mother relationship, emphasizing the necessity of intermind experiences for psychic survival. Years later, Samuel Gerson built on object relational conceptions of trauma after observing Holocaust survivors and their children. He described how massive trauma resulted in the collapse of the transitional space and contributed to the intergenerational transmission of trauma. Both articles emphasize the essential role of witnessing to sustain life after severe trauma.

New Topics in Psychological Development
Christopher Bonovitz asserted that young adulthood is a developmental stage in its own right, distinct from adolescence. The primary developmental task of young adulthood is separation from the parents, which involves a symbolic parricide. Bonovitz illustrated his ideas with a case of “failure to launch,” in which the patient’s development was stalled by a narcissistic vulnerable parent unable to allow the self to be “killed off.” While classical and contemporary psychoanalytic theories focus on the parent-child relationship with regard to personality development and psychopathogenesis, sibling relationships are relatively unexamined and undertheorized by comparison. Marilyn Charles’ evocative paper examines sibling relationships, providing examples of how they may foster or impede psychological development.

Lost and Found
Facilitator: Jay Alan Davis, MD    
 These articles explore the dynamics of losing things, getting lost, being forgotten, and forgetting one’s self. According to a classic paper by Anna Freud, the child is more prone to get lost when the mother is unable to hold him/her in mind and engage in a process of mutual holding in memory. Sheldon Bach described how such issues may result in problems with self/object constancy, anxiety, memory, and learning. When these problems were revived in the transference and counter-transference in his treatment of a young adult patient, the therapist and patient struggled to keep each other alive in memory. In modern parlance, these are relational traumas and the therapeutic interventions must promote development of mentalization functions.
