Il trauma nella trasmissione psichica tra le generazioni - The article directly refers to the revision of some basic concepts of Jungian thought, (archetypes as psychic organizers, the discussion on the relationship between intra-psychic vs. inter-subjective, the notion of psychic contagion, the concepts of psychoid and synchronicity), and to the most recent post-Jungian research (the archetypes as image schemata, by Knox, the emergent psychic development by Cambray, or the defences of the Self, by Kalshed). Referring to these themes, it is possible to connect some contributions coming from psycho-analysis to some possible mechanisms of inter-generational transmission. The Jungian perspective on psychological trauma (present conflict, dissociation and regression, adaptation) may give an important contribution to shed light on the fact based on clinical observations that beyond the direct effects of trauma which are directly felt by the person, the latter’s mental life may be deeply affected and tied to traumatic events and contents which do not involve him directly, as they belong to previous generations.
