The Body-Mind Study Group of the Swedish Psychoanalytic Society

Iréne Matthis, M.D., Ph.D. and Magnus Kihlbom, M.D.

The Swedish group, which is now entering its third year of studying body-mind issues, focused during Spring term 1999 on psychosomatics. On January 26 we started with a discussion of Luis Chiozza's paper “Psychoanalytic Conception of the Body. Psychosomatics or Psychoanalysis Proper?” a paper based on Freud's epistemological approach presented in “An Outline of Psychoanalysis” (1940 [1938]). Iréne Matthis, chairwoman of the group, also presented her impressions from a visit to the Fundación Luis Chiozza and the Centro Weizsaecker de Consulta Médica in Buenos Aires. On February 23 the French psychosomatic tradition of Pierre Marty (“pensée opéeratoire”) was presented by two members of the group. Kristina Larsson, who had visited the Institut Psychosomatique in Paris, presented their clinical work, and Mikael Sundéen reviewed the theoretical papers published within the tradition.

On March 16 assistant professor Tatjana Sivik, head of the Institute of Psychosomatic Medicine in Gothenburg, presented a paper on the relationship of illness and disease to the lack of interpersonal communication, and on April 20 assistant professor Birgitta Evengård, from the Department of Infectious Diseases, Karolinska Institute at Huddinge, gave a paper on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She is head of a special clinic for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome cases, of which they have now investigated more than five hundred.
