Handed down from one generation to the next, the unspoken horrors of war, betrayal, dissociation, and disaster in the families of patient and analyst alike are not only revived in the therapeutic relationship but, when understood, actually provide the keys to the healing process. In the course of nearly thirty years of work, Françoise Davoine and Jean-Max Gaudillière have uncovered the ways in which transference and countertransference are affected by the experience of social catastrophe. -- from the publisher
“At the heart of psychoanalytic innovation, Davoine and Gaudillière argue, is the emergence, within the analysis, of unspoken, catastrophic histories that link both patient and analyst to the darker untold stories of the twentieth century. The authors show it is through the transference that such histories can emerge and become “inscribed in time,” a process that allows a new subject to come into being and a silent history to enter the social realm. Bringing together French psychoanalytic thought and American war psychiatry, they reveal the crucial historical task of psychoanalysis in our era of war and the rethinking of subjectivity and freedom at the site of trauma.” – Dr. Cathy Caruth, author of Unclaimed Experience: Trauma, Narrative, and History

“This is an original work. It is fresh, daring, and authentic. Its clinical experience rings true. I know of nothing else like it in the analytic literature, though, like most good analytic writing, it consists, first of all, of believable stories about patients and treatments…” – M. Gerard Fromm, Ph.D., Director, Erikson Institute, Austen Riggs Center

“Davoine and Gaudillière give us the benefit of three decades of working as clinical analysts and researchers with survivors of trauma. Their wide-ranging book speaks miles about how society views the madness of war and other horrors. History Beyond Trauma offers a masterfully original perspective on those who are mad, and also on those who seek to help them.”- Elizabeth Loftus, Ph.D, Distinguished Professor, University of California-Irvine, Past President, American Psychological Society
