“There is much more continuity between intra-uterine life and earliest infancy than the impressive caesura of the act of birth would have us believe.” Freud, S. Inhibitions, Symptoms and Anxiety, 1926
In the paragraph immediately following this quotation, Freud references Ferenczi’s Thalassal regression, a longing for the womb. This same Caesura quote fertilized Bion’s “Caesura” paper, where the concept amplified to describe the experience of being joined and separated at the same time. This course will read selections from Freud, Ferenczi and Bion relevant to uterine/ embryonic experience. Additionally, we will take these observations to look primitive mental states through embryonic and/or neo-natal vertices. Participants will use case material to experiment with clinical interpretations and interventions viewed from those vertices.
After taking this course, participants will be able to:
1 – Discuss Freud, Ferenczi’s and Bion’s ideas about the intrauterine elements in personality.
2 – Discuss similarities, differences, and same/different at the same time of the three authors’ idea.
3 – Use imagery of the theoretical discussions to form clinical interventions with patients.
