This collection of new contributions from psychoanalysts, group
analysts and organizational consultants from Europe, Australia and
the United States examines the patterns of conscious and
unconscious life of those organizations in which traumatic
experience is ubiquitous. Among the organizations studied are
hospitals and clinics for the care and treatment of the mentally
ill and the intellectually disabled; prisons; international
industrial and financial firms; trade unions; universities and
institutes for training mental health professionals; and
churches.Drawing from Freudian, Kleinian, Independent and Lacanian
perspectives in psychoanalysis and from Foulkesian and Bionian
perspectives in group analysis, the authors illustrate the fourth
basic assumption of Incohesion: Aggregation/Massification, and
elucidate the painful personifications of it. Of special interest
are the transmission of psychotic anxieties and the traumatic
enactments of them, especially when people are insensitive to the
rights and obligations of organizational citizenship.
