Dr Haydée Faimberg
Haydée Faimberg, M.D., is training and supervising analyst with the Société Psychoanalytique de Paris and the Asociación Psicoanalitica Argentina. She is a former Vice-President of the International Psychoanalytical Association. She is a recipient of the Haskell Norman Award in 2005 and the Mary Sigourney Award in 2013, for her significant contributions to Clinical Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic thought. Faimberg's best-known work is The Telescoping of Generation: Listening to the Narcissistic Links between Generations (Routledge, 2005). Additionally her writings include the innovation of some psychoanalytic concepts, including the 'as yet situation', which proposes a broader concept of Nachträglichkeit (après-coup or deferred action) than that proposed by Freud in Letter 52. Further she has addressed revisiting the Oedipus Myth and the Narcissistic Father figure, and the psychic consequences of Nazism in psychoanalytic patients. Faimberg developed a method called: "Faimberg's method 'listening to listening' to discuss clinical material in groups." Her work also includes (although not limited to, she has contributed to 15 books) these chapters: 'Listening to the Telescoping of Generations'. In: Birksted-Breen D., Flanders S. and Gibeault A., (Eds.): Reading French Psychoanalysis, pp. 405-420, London/New York, Routledge 2010; 'The as yet situation in Winnicott's Fragment of an Analysis' (1955), " You Father did no make you the honour of…yet " ',The Psychoanalytc Quarterly, Volume LXXXII, Number 4, pp 849- 875 ; ' "Well, you better ask them": the Countertransference Position at the Crossroad'.
