The Body-Mind Study Groups of the Swedish Psychoanalytic Society

Iréne Matthis, Magnus Kihlbom, Daniela Montelatici Prawitz and Lennart Bryngelson

There are at present three study groups working in Stockholm and one in Malmö-Lund in the south of Sweden. Many members of the groups were actively engaged in organizing the Double Conference on Sexuality and Gender that was held in Stockholm between 29 August and 3 September 2002. It was for us a very rewarding, although time- and work-consuming, event (see separate report in this issue).

1. During the autumn term of 2002, after finishing reading Sexing the Brain by Leslie Rogers, the Body- Mind Study Group revisited Clinical Studies in Neuro-Psychoanalysis by Karen Kaplan-Solms and Mark Solms, to which we had earlier devoted much time. We invited neuropsychologist Håkan Nyman from the Karolinska Institute to give his point of view on the work and to discuss some issues of common interest with us. Most of the autumn was, however, devoted to the article by David D. Olds in JAPA (vol. 48/2): “A Semiotic Model of the Mind.” After that some members of the group wanted to learn more about the semiotic approach, as one way of conceptualizing or “bridging” the gap between body and mind, brain and soul. The group therefore decided to allow new members to join, while others could take “time out.” So the group has renewed itself, and the first months of 2003 were devoted to the study of the semiotic model as presented by Iréne Matthis, also the chair of the group, in her book The Thinking Body (the model is built on Peirce).
