ABSTRACT

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Professor Michael Menaker on February 14, 2021. Professor Menaker was born in Vienna (Austria) in 1934 from American parents who were trained in psychoanalysis under Professor Sigmund Freud. The world of pineal research and chronobiology has lost a great scientist, wonderful mentor and compassionate friend.

Dissociation vs Repression: A New Neuropsychoanalytic Model for Psychopathology

Recent research on trauma, attachment and neuroscience point at a clear divide in psychopathology between disorders based on repression, (as in Freud’s repression model) and psychopathologies structured on dissociative mechanisms, a response to severe interpersonal trauma. Pathologies based on repression are typical of a neurotic structure, (with better developmental outcome), while pathologies based on dissociation are of more severe, often borderline nature, as in Otto Kernberg’s borderline…
