Vestiges of Childhood and Adult Psychoanalysis

  • Florence Quartier-Frings


«Thirty or forty years later...» an adult, who no longer remembers the very young child he or she once was, decides to undergo analysis. The client may be the victim of disturbing elements in his or her life, inexplicable repetitions, agonised suffering... or may not. The client may be a victim of fears that make life uncomfortable or worse, cutting the person off from the immediacy of experience, repressing emotional reactions. All this is linked to the child who once existed, but if so, how?
