Anna Sabatini Scalmati: Psychoanalytic psychotherapy with political refugees

Focus of my paper will be the psychoanalytic psychotherapy with political refugees and particularly the problems of technique. In this kind of therapy is necessary to have an eye to the social reality and the other to the psyche. But, if the aim of therapy is to reclaim the psyche from the deposits and the shadows of the trauma, the analyst and the patient, sooner or later, will have to arrive and work through the psychic world and the web of unconscious phantasy. In this therapy this is a difficult step.
