The concept of trauma is a complicated one for psychoanalysis, both because of its changing definitions across time and the degree to which it touches upon the convergence of internal psychic reality with external events. This seminar will feature the presentation of detailed process material from the analysis of a war veteran and will examine that convergence of internal and external reality. The material will highlight ways in which the nature of the traumatic event and unconscious dynamics interact to produce symptomatology and shape the analytic process. The case will also demonstrate ways in which trauma affects character and, conversely, ways in which character affects the patient’s handling of the war trauma as well as efforts at recovery. Dr. Jacobs will respond to the presentation, and will facilitate a discussion with the audience of both this case and the larger technical and conceptual issues involved.
