Freud, even in the passage from trauma theory to the hypothesis of mere subjective interpretation of trauma, always maintained the idea of the traumatic origin of neuroses. Hence the importance of trauma, a concept that according to Howard Levine (2021) needs greater theoretical consistency and agreement with the psychoanalytic community. Such need, which is both clinical and theoretical, goes from a new attention to the symbolic register to the texture of language and to the painful words that gave birth to the subject. Beyond the sterile contrapositions between real trauma and fantasized trauma, or between body, affects and words, a trauma is characterized by its destructive effects on the symbolic register. The return of childhood trauma in the form of current events refers to the inadequate symbolic transformation of the traumatic event. Clinical work, wherever possible, must therefore focus on words, albeit full of affects, so that old traumatic events cease to repeat themselves and become definitively the past.
