Clinical vignettes
The Betrayal of Cats
By Jorge Silva Rodighiero
One of the symptoms that make people go to a psychologist is phobia. We could define it as the intense fear triggered by the presence of an object or situation which provokes anxiety and complicates the daily lives of people.

Some observations on case presentations.
By Marta Serra Frediani
Ever since the Seminar of the Freudian Field was created in Barcelona in 1985, its meetings have consisted of two different sections: a seminar on texts conducted by a lecturer, and a seminar on clinical cases, delivered jointly by the lecturer and two psychoanalysts who "present" a clinical case from their own practice.

Theodicy, common sense and the success of psychoanalysis in Argentina
By Sergio Eduardo Visacovsky
A lot has been said and written about the predominance of psychoanalysis in Argentina, compared to other Latin American and European countries. Master of a large field which comprises an heterogeneous group of practices involved in the treatment of mental ailments, psychoanalysis continues to prevail due to the large number of followers it has among psychoanalysts and patients, the number and importance of psychoanalytic institutions, and the extent to which it has become widespread in the general population, especially in Buenos Aires, the city where it has had the greatest development in Argentina.

How S. discovered the holographic world.
By Lic. Inés Sotelo
The experience of psychoanalysis, the device of psychoanalysis and any events that take place within that framework are considered analytical acts, since they bring about the transformation, the subversion of the subject, insofar as that which is transformed within such device cannot revert to its former status.
The Freudian understanding of hysteria and its representation in the films of Alfred Hitchcock.
By Bernard Kennedy
In this essay I will consider Freud's theories on hysteria. I will outline his theory of seduction and infantile phantasy. It will involve a consideration of the role of sexuality in hysteria and Freud's typology of hysterical symptoms. I will then consider other theories of hysteria, including those of Showalter, Mitchell and Foucault.
I will outline Freud's theory of representation and regression, because each has a role in hysteria, and look at Lacan's approach to regression. This will lead to a consideration of cinema as a representation of image, where I will illustrate, through two of Hitchcock's films, Rebecca (1940) and Rope (1948), the representation of hysteria in the female and male gender.
I will illustrate how hysteria is the movement of the return of the repressed and is centred on the Freudian theory of sexual trauma, with its Lacanian resolution of entry to the order of the phallus, and its Freudian resolution through speech.
