The Body-Mind Study Groups of the Swedish Psychoanalytic Society

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

The body-mind theme is at the center of the activities of several study groups of the Swedish Psychoanalytical Society. The first group, initiated by Magnus Kihlbom and chaired by Iréne Matthis, started as early as the autumn of 1997. During the following years it spawned many offspring, related to different lines of interest. The first aim was to gain a deeper knowledge and enlarge the psychoanalytic perspective on the body-mind theme with the assistance of other disciplines, such as philosophy, semiotics, neuropsychology, psychosomatic medicine, and neuroscience. We are now trying to create a common ground (conceptually and clinically) for neuroscience and psychoanalysis for the exchange of experiences and ideas.

Over the years, more than 60 people have taken part in the work, some as members of several groups, others of only one. In May 2004, a joint meeting was organized for all present and former participants of the groups. Many responded to the invitation, and during a very successful and stimulating meeting, one person from each group reported on his or her group's activities during the last year. The meeting confirmed the value of this kind of seminar and the importance of the theme. Many expressed the wish to engage in discussions with others in the Society and from other disciplines.
