Listening to Transmissions between Generations

Working with intergenerational secrets, wounds and strengths - psychoanalytic and relational approaches

With Dr Haydée Faimberg and Dr Jill Salberg

Saturday 18 November 2017 - London

It is widely accepted that the traumas of parents, grandparents and ancestors are deeply woven into the psychological fabric of the living, often manifesting in the form of psychological vulnerability throughout life. But this presents a particular enigma for both patient and psychotherapist alike: how can the material be known and worked with when it belongs to someone else - mother, grandmother, father, grandfather or great grandparent?

Our two speakers, both psychoanalysts, will each offer their own distinct understanding of how intergenerational transmission operates in the psyche and how it can surface in a therapy or analysis. It will be proposed that a certain quality of listening to the patient's reactions to the analyst can play a vibrant part in this process, and that atunement to the patient's movement from presence to absence in the relationship also provides vital clues to the intergenerational attachment patterns that are passed across three generations. Each speaker will present their work and then a dialogue with each other will follow. The dialogue will be predicated on 'listening' and how each other's work is heard and received. Their conversation will then open up to a dialogue with the audience.
