Intergenerational transmission of trauma
Traumatic elements of destructiveness devoid of meaning and not elaborated by one generation, can arouse fascination and adhesiveness in the next generation. Thus the vacuum of depression is avoided. The clinical and therapeutic approach of babies, children and adolescents highlights this possible transmission through adhesiveness. A struggle can ensue against the growth process.
The fan of countertransference opposes the mobile gathering of its folds against the fixity of traumatic clinging. I will refer to the thought of F. Tustin.
