From the External Group to the Internal One. The Analytical Psychology Moves from the Private Practice to the Multidisciplinary Intervention to Integrate the Functions of Dissociated Patients with Early Trauma

Carlo Melodia (AGAP), Laura Cima (CIPA), Magda Di Renzo (ARPA) & Adele Ruffo (CIPA)

We propose to use "complex psychology", not only for psychotherapic work with individual patients, but also as a tool for evaluating and coordinating activities within multi-disciplinary teams aimed at the care of people, children or adults, who present dissociative states attributable to early trauma or re-activated by former trauma realizing situations of cumulative traumas. In a team that aims at the care of dissociated subjects, that the analyst psychologist can support the group's activities in identifying the specific needs of each patient, in recognizing the professionals who can best respond to them and in coordinating their activities in order to obtain an integrated approach, which is an indispensable condition to effort the psychic integration of the dissociated parts of each subject.
