Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book directs our attention to the earliest experiences in the development of the mind and spirit and to nonverbal and perhaps unspeakable experiences that become foundational in our development as humans. Rafael E. López-Corvo’s understanding of the pre-conceptual markers of traumatic experience within the clinical encounter and his ability to write about these 'presence-absences' enables us to understand and see ourselves and our patients more deeply and compassionately. His extension of Bion's approach adds to our appreciation of both what it is to be human and how we as clinicians work to increase aliveness." (Judy K. Eekhoff, PhD, FIPA , Training and Supervising Analyst)

"Rafael E. López-Corvo’s book is an imaginative, stimulating, and thought-provoking study of the nature of psychic trauma and its treatment from the vantage point of pre-conceptual traumas." (Professor Charles Hanly, past President)

"In this insightful and original book, Rafael E. López-Corvo cleverly explores what he describes as pre-conceptual traumas and conceptual traumas and the continuous interrelation between them. The result is a deeply intelligent, creative, and generous book that I highly recommend to all professionals in mental health who wish to further their understanding of this fundamental topic." (Antonino Ferro, President)
