The Injury of Severe Psychological Trauma: A Psychosemiotic Perspective Bent Rosenbaum & Sverre Varvin
Post-war Belgrade was the scene for the first discussions of the texts in this book. The times of upheaval in former Yugoslavia, the conflicts in the Middle East and other places provided the background. After September 11th, the questions raised in this book became more acute. In what way must the massive traumatization in today's world change our understanding and conception of psychic trauma? What may psychoanalysis offer for the many that suffer psychic traumatization?
This book is published in both Serbian and English. The different papers revisit the trauma concept, the clinical application of psychoanalysis, the relation between the individual, the group and society in relation to trauma and historical aspects. Their theoretical vantage point may be different but all relate to and are critical towards current psychoanalytic theories on trauma. The need not only to revisit the trauma concept but also to revise our understanding of psychic trauma, to incorporate new insights from neighbouring disciplines, to develop new models and theories is a work in progress and, in fact, the basis for and ongoing concern of the European Psychoanalytic Federation Trauma Research Group.
