Presentation of Julieta Lucero Neirotti and Florencia Bernthal Raz

[Automatic translation from Spanish]:

We present an article written by Julieta Lucero Neirotti and Florencia Bernthal Raz.

Julieta Lucero Neirotti has been engaged in clinical work with children and adolescents for more than 10 years, including experience around disability. In turn, as a founding member of the Salto Foundation (Argentina), since 2015 she has been working on teaching and research in childhood that includes, among other topics, autism and the problems that affect children and young people today. Considering, in particular, the difficulties in establishing a social bond in a digitized world, highlighting the parental and school demands around childhood.

In this sense, as editor of the magazine Saltos, she has published in it and in the blog of La Casa de Paraula, several articles that aim to think about childhood in the light of the diagnostic axes that insist on stereotypical functions, as well as in the symptomatic ones that are reiterated today. She also coordinates the Diacritical Children area of Fractal, Center for Studies in Critical Thinking (Barcelona).

In this article she wanted to express some ideas about the clinic with children behind combining responses to emerging problems and, mainly, to childhood to come.

Florencia Bernthal Raz is a graduate psychologist at the National University of Córdoba in Argentina and a graduate in psychoanalysis at the State University of New York, United States. Her natural inclination for psychoanalysis at the beginning of her studies resulted in a deep training in research, education, and clinic, over years of exercise.

In addition to her clinical practice, she worked in private and public institutions that promote mental health and the social inclusion of children and adults. In New York, Florencia is co-founder of the Lacanian Encounter Association of Psychoanalysis (LEAP), an organization dedicated to articulating psychoanalysis in the fields of artificial intelligence and translation.

She is editor-translator of the academic and scientific journal Saltos and member of the board of directors of the Salto Foundation in Argentina.

She has experience in early childhood education, where she developed the tools to definitely include the child in training experience and provide new learning tools that positively impact both students and their families.

The method and practice of Lacanian psychoanalysis offer an original approach to dealing with and overcoming human suffering.

The article aims to promote significant advances in practice with children and we believe that they get a look at childhood and their time in relation to psychoanalytic work that is absolutely new and interesting.

I conclude the presentation with a sentence by the authors that condenses the subject of the article very well:

Our proposal is to replace the notion of childhood with that of time, where we can operate with a certain variability because there is no question of youth. We also replace the chronology with the jump, which gives us the most necessary space between one part of the story and another to install the presence of the child and its call in it. While chronologically life and its events will continue, jumping will always be a matter of decision.
