FREUD, FEMALES AND DISSIDENCE: MARGARETE HILFERDING, KAREN HORNEY AND OTTO RANK
These early clinicians, who importantly differed from Freud, each tried to shift his ground beliefs about women’s bodies in basic developmental theory. I will exemplify this by elaborating their materials concerning the centrality of childbirth. One aspect of Freud’s disruptive fights with colleagues lay in his loyalty to his phallocratic certainties. I hope to open the discussion about how these problems may have affected us, even into today’s clinically pluralistic climate.
Rosemary Balsam M.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Yale Medical School, a Training and Supervising analyst at the Western New England Institute for Psychoanalysis, and is in private practice. Her recent book, Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis (Routledge, 2012), reflects her special interest in female development and how the body is represented and theorized about in psychoanalysis. Gender issues, mothers and daughters, the topic of “the vanished pregnant body” — how psychoanalysis tends to ignore pregnancy and delivery as an imagined aspect of a girl’s future — are major topics of Dr. Balsam’s articles and prizewinning papers. Dr. Balsam’s other books are: Becoming a Psychotherapist: A Clinical Primer (University of Chicago Press, 1984), which includes one of the first chapters on the pregnant therapist, and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: The Supervisory Process (International Universities Press, 2002). Dr. Balsam is on the editorial boards of Psychoanalytic Quarterly, American Imago, an editorial reader for International Journal of Psychoanalysis with her husband Paul Schwaber, and she is an editor of the Book Review section of the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association.
