The complex interplay, both intrapsychic and interpersonal between Trauma, Unconscious Phantasy, and Manic Repair vs Reparation have been considered since 1895 by Sigmund Freud and further advanced by Melanie Klein's theory of the Depressive Position. Contemporary Freudian and Kleinian psychoanalysts have studied and exchanged with this focus in ongoing discussions. Both enduring and renewed interest in times when traumatic life events persist, this focus warrants continued study and exchange.

With trauma, the psychic space is foreclosed. Often, the depth of mind is inaccessible as unsymbolized affects make for concreteness. The body becomes the vehicle for expression. Repetitions of trauma and the presence of psychosomatics provide openings for the unveiling of unconscious phantasy, allowing for a process of symbolization and reparation.

This conference brings together psychoanalysts from Germany, Italy and USA to consider the historical evolution from 1895 to 2018 of the understanding of and working with trauma, embodiment and unconscious fantasy.

Sponsored by The Contemporary Freudian Society, Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research and Sigmund Freud Institute, Stuttgart, Germany
