«Do you know how I get rid of what you say?»: About Women, Fear and Transmission


Reflection on the 1936 war, the post-war, the dictatorship and the transition involves a difficult challenge. It means a complex and devastating event for humanity that has been indelibly inscribed as a wound which is difficult to heal in the subjectivity of those who lived in the first person, and their descendants.

In our work with groups we promote the structure and function of the original «life group», through the restoration formula from word and reflection groups, that recognize Freud’s link between groups and subject.
In the group we are presenting, the inner dynamics led to a reflection tied to gender. Women who have not resigned themselves to their experiences disappearing, which vindicate to break the silenced character of memory and resignify on the personal and collective past, trying to heal the present.

The analysis by the coordinators of these groups shows how transgenerational subway trauma is an expression of discrimination trauma suffered and shared by women.
The professionals involved in these groups have an ethical responsibility that can only be accomplished if we know from what position we are listening.
