Tip: To sort articles by Rank…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

“I'm a Human Being Again”: Transformations of the Early Psychic Trauma by Regenration of Intrapsychic Representations: Ursula Volz-Boers. Pp. 1137-1159

Patients with severe traumata (of separation) within the first year of life often already activate fragments of trauma reaction during the first sessions of treatment. Their expected retraumatization is defended against by a reaction of flight from the analysis. By presenting case reports, the author shows how her early construction of an inner similarity between the threat of breaking off analysis on the one hand, and early trauma on the other hand, creates confidence in the analytic relationship. In the subsequent process, the deepened affective experiencing of trauma reaction in countertransference and transference increasingly forms metaphorical and verbal—i. e., symbolicrepresentation. In this way, the new construction of representations (of a protecting, motherly object and of a coherent, infantile self) occurs. After that, the trauma reaction can increasingly be worked through as a defense of oedipal conflicts, according to standard psychoanalytic technique. In its successful result, the treatment leads to a transformation of the trauma by a successive change of its intrapsychic representation.
