  • Psychoanalytic psychotherapy in times of social crisis: The impact on therapeutic relationship. [Review]
    Psychiatriki 2018 Jul-Sep; 29(3):257-263Soumaki E, Anagnostopoulos DC
  • Discussion on defining therapy factors develops along two lines: one focusing on the interpretation and another focusing on the relationship. Changes in the socio-economic circumstances, cultural particularities, dismissal of institutions, constant negation, lack of boundaries, confusion of roles, various family secrets revealed due to "collapses," major conflicts, violence and aggression filling…
  • Working Through the "Caesura": A Clinical Illustration. [Journal Article]
    J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2016; 64(4):777-93Caldironi L
  • More and more often analysts work with patients who must develop the capacity to participate in analysis. One such patient, H., conveyed the impression of being "bogged down." He did not work or study, and at home with his family was prone to violent outbursts; his social relationships were centered around drug use. Concepts from Bion and Winnicott helped H.'s analyst take the risks necessary to …
  • Murder and psychosis: Neuropsychological profiles of homicide offenders with schizophrenia. [Journal Article]
    Crim Behav Ment Health 2017; 27(2):146-161Stratton J, Brook M, Hanlon RE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our findings indicate that impaired cognition may play an important role in the commission of homicide by individuals with schizophrenia. A subgroup with God/Satan/demon delusions seem sufficiently less impaired that they might be able to engage in metacognitive treatment approaches, aimed at changing their relationship to their psychotic symptoms, thus reducing the perception of power and omnipotence of hallucinated voices and increasing their safety.

  • Lost in (cyber)space: finding two adolescent boys hiding from their own humanity. [Case Reports]
    J Anal Psychol 2015; 60(2):220-244Tyminski R
  • This article explores the intense psychological effects of compulsive Internet use, which has become increasingly common among adolescent boys and young men. Two cases are presented and discussed to illustrate some of the psychic distortions around thinking and feeling, as these occurred in the analysis of a mid-adolescent boy and of another patient in later adolescence. A kind of narcissistic om…
  • Life is not a dream: the importance of being real. [Journal Article]
    J Am Psychoanal Assoc 2010; 58(6):1139-57Oliner MM
  • This paper explores the value attached to "being real," how it is used in various contexts, and how this value persists outside the purview of reality testing or other objective criteria. It addresses how we view the form of a dream and other illusions of reality, including fetishes, whose sole value resides in their material reality. With Proust's description of the experience of tasting a madel…
  • The self or the voice? Relative contributions of self-esteem and voice appraisal in persistent auditory hallucinations. [Journal Article]
    Schizophr Res 2009; 112(1-3):174-80Fannon D, Hayward P, … Wykes T
  • CONCLUSIONS: Low self-esteem is of fundamental importance to the understanding of affective disturbance in voice hearers. Therapeutic interventions need to address both the appraisal of self and hallucinations in schizophrenia. Measures which ameliorate low self-esteem can be expected to improve depressed mood in this patient group. Further elucidation of the mechanisms involved can strengthen existing models of positive psychotic symptoms and provide targets for more effective treatments.
  • The Zero-vision: potential side effects of communicating health perfection and zero risk. [Review]
    Patient Educ Couns 2006; 60(3):267-71Fugelli P
  • Public health education may have harmful side effects: generate fear, give rise to healthism and contribute to a medical sorting society. To prevent these adverse reactions a new deal for public health communication is presented. It is commended to move public health from omnipotence to moderation, from life style to living conditions, from risk to the bright sides of health, from statistical clo…
  • The application of psychoanalytic principles to the study of "magic". [Historical Article]
    Coll Antropol 2003; 27(1):403-11Rudan V, Tripković M, Vidas M
  • In this paper Freud's work on animism and magic is elaborated. Those two subjects are presented mainly in his work "Totem and Taboo" (1913). The true motives, which lead primitive man to practice magic are, according to Freud, human whishes and his immense belief in their power. Importance attached to wishes and to the will has been extended from them to all those psychical acts, which are subjec…
