Mafia and psychotherapy: notes on a research - In several years of clinical and conceptual research, the author has investigated the interface between the world of mafia and psychodynamic therapy. After a synthesis of this research, here for the first time some clinical cases of patients involved with mafia are reported. These clinical experiences raise several questions also for psychotherapy in general. In particular, the therapist’s clinical attention should be carefully paid to contexts in which the theme of fear is rooted in important aspects of external reality. Anthropological characteristics, family values and subcultures should also be carefully considered.

Keywords: Mafia, psychotherapy, family, anthropology, training in psychotherapy
