Conversations with Clinicians
David Rosenfeld, M.D., Rossend Camón, Isabel Laudo and Carme García Gomila
Translated by: Daniel Benveniste
Throughout his professional career, David Rosenfeld has been interested in researching the clinical theory and psychoanalytic treatment of psychotic and other severe mental disorders. In 1992, he published The Psychotic Aspects of the Personality, which in 2015 was translated into Castellano in a revised and expanded edition under the title Lo Psicótico: Aspectos de la Personalidad. Earlier, in 2012, he published The Soul, the Mind, and the Psychoanalyst.
We appreciate his kind and generous willingness to respond to our interview and to talk with us about his thinking and his clinical work.
TiP: Dr. Rosenfeld, we know about your long professional career, but we would like to know something about the person accompanying the professional. Could you give us some biographical details?
DR: I was born in Buenos Aires, in a neighborhood with a majority of immigrants who spoke mostly Italian from Genoa and from southern Italy, and also a very old German dialect that my grandparents maintained.
After several years in elementary school in the High Andes Mountains, in a small town where I learned many things from the Mapuche Indians, such as the word that heals and magic, I also saw with my own eyes how a goat raised a human baby. A Mapuche mother was not available all day and so when the baby cried, the goat came from outside, coming through the door and put the teat in the baby's mouth.
