Issue Three: "Migration"

Isabelle  Lafarge, April 30, 2017
Migration is a theme that finds its place in our eJournal, a space where psychoanalytic thoughts from all continents come together. As analysts, the place of the stranger and of strangeness is particularly revealed through unconscious forces. This touches us especially. The burning news of the great migratory movements, urges us to share our experiences. More.
Among the many losses that migrants face, the loss of culture and the language of origin is particularly devastating. Learning the language of exile can be felt like a betrayal of the mother.
