In Memory of Göran Schedin, PH.D

Birgitta Ejve

Our colleague in the Swedish Psycho-Analytical Society, Göran Schedin, Ph.D., died suddenly and unexpectedly in February 1979. He was only 53 years old.

He was greatly interested in finding new ways of achieving psychoanalytical goals, both as a family therapist and over a period of many years as a youth psycho-therapist, where he was particularly interested in prepsychotic adolescents.

At the time of his death Göran Schedin was in the process of re-extending his psycho-analytical practice and research after having spent a great deal of his time as a teacher, planner and psychotherapist at the University and the Child Guidance Clinics (PBU and Ericastiftelsen) of Stockholm.

His contributions to the Swedish Psycho-Analytical Society as a teacher, a supervisor and from 1976 to 1978 as the Scientific Secretary, have been very much appreciated. In his book about Adolescent Development and Psycho-Therapy (Ungdomsutveckling och psykoterapi, 1977, Stockholm: Natur och Kultur) the full extent of his ability is revealed in the way in which he i.a. describes the primary process and its vicissitudes in the development of adolescents.

It was no doubt his deep understanding of the primary process along with his stringent insistence for truth that endowed him with an almost prophetic nature.
