Presentation by Dr Jorge Valenzuela Rendón, Monterrey, Nuevo León, México
This work deals with a case of obsessive neurosis. It is the result of almost a year of psychoanalytical treatment of a patient in his twenties. In this presentation we will analyze: (1) how the ideal father image supported the patient’s obsessions; (2) the importance of the mother as a key figure for the development of object relations; (3) how obsessive ideas function as psychological protection; and (4) some biological correlations of obsessive neurosis.
About the AINPSA
The Iberian Neuropsychoanalysis Association (AINPSA) has emerged as the result of a common interest shared by people among psychoanalytical, neuroscientific, and biological backgrounds. Our main goal is to facilitate the study, research and dissemination of Freud’s ideas together with their current developments in neuropsychoanalysis. By holding regular meetings we aim at promoting open dialogue between different disciplines and groups to broaden and deepen our understanding of the body/mind relationship in a dual-aspect monism way. Topics include, but are not limited to, consciousness and free-energy principle, biological underpinnings of the mental, psychosomatology, affective and cognitive neurosciences, etc. We also want to create and develop neuropsychoanalytical projects with practical applications in Health, Arts and Education.
