In The Ancestor Syndrome Anne Ancelin Schutzenberger explains and provides clinical examples of her unique psychogenealogical approach to psychotherapy. She shows how, as mere links in a chain of generations, we may have no choice in having the events and traumas experienced by our ancestors visited upon us in our own lifetime. The book includes fascinating case studies and examples of 'genosociograms' (family trees) to illustrate how her clients have conquered seemingly irrational fears, psychological and even physical difficulties by discovering and understanding the parallels between their own life and the lives of their forebears. The theory of 'invisible loyalty' owed to previous generations, which may make us unwittingly re-enact their life events, is discussed in the light of ongoing research into transgenerational therapy. Anne Ancelin Schutzenberger draws on over 20 years of experience as a therapist and analyst and is a well-respected authority, particularly in the field of Group Therapy and Psychodrama. First published as Aie, mes Aieux this fascinating insight into a unique style of clinical work has already sold over 32,000 copies in France and will appeal to anyone working in the psychotherapy profession.

Freud wrote to Binswanger on the anniversary of his daughter's death, "We will remain inconsolable. I don't care for my grandchildren anymore, but find no joy in life anymore."The author poses the question in this book; what legacy does grief, loss, trauma have upon the second and third generations? When Freud wrote "I don't care for my grandchildren anymore', what impact did his agonised grief have upon them?This book is a meditation on the ideas that have evolved in response to this question over the author's thirty years as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. Her central thesis is that we must not ignore, in our psychoanalytic practice, the impact of our ancestral history, especially if our ancestors have suffered, for their anguish can return and haunt us. It is the anguished return of traumatic experience that repeats itself across the generations and affects the way the next generation is perceived.

It is possible to trace the root cause of an illness to our ancestors--their unresolved psychic distress can become part of the cellular memory inherited by their descendants. Until the issue has been settled successfully, it will continue to trigger illnesses in the generations that follow. Biogenealogy: Decoding the Psychic Roots of Illness offers protocols for diagnosis and treatment for these conflicts.

From mass murder to genocide, slavery to colonial suppression, acts of atrocity have lives that extend far beyond the horrific moment. They engender trauma that echoes for generations, in the experiences of those on both sides of the act. Gabriele Schwab reads these legacies in a number of narratives, primarily through the writing of postwar Germans and the descendents of Holocaust survivors. She connects their work to earlier histories of slavery and colonialism and to more recent events, such as South African Apartheid, the practice of torture after 9/11, and the "disappearances" that occurred during South American dictatorships.. SchwabÆs text includes memoirs. She also incorporates her own reminiscences of growing up in post-war Germany, mapping interlaced memories and histories as they interact in psychic life and cultural memory. Schwab concludes with a bracing look at issues of responsibility, reparation, and forgiveness across the victim/perpetrator divide. "Passionate, committed, and hard-hitting on every page, Haunting Legacies draws on an exceptional range of theoretical models and literary texts to reveal the traumatic traces of violence written in to the cultural fabric of the present day. Rigorous in its analysis but never indifferent to the real suffering permeating the objects of its investigation, Haunting Legacies marries righteous indignation with a poetic reflection on Gabriele Schwab's own history growing up in West Germany in the immediate aftermath of her country's genocidal madness."-Stuart Taberner, Leeds Humanities Research Institute "Highly Original and courageous. Schwab breaks new ground in the study of trauma and its intergenerational transmission."-Michael Levine, Rutgers University "Brilliant, fresh, and stimulating. Schwab's work considerably expands on the most recent advances in psychoanalytic and postcolonial theory and is sure to be discussed across disciplines for many years to come."-Amir Eshel, Stanford University

This is the fourth book by Professor Franz Ruppert translated into English from the German original. In it Ruppert continues his exploration of the impact of trauma on human beings that has been the topic of his previous books. This book looks at the structure and functioning of the psyche, and how traumas influence psychological functioning. He takes a holistic stance, understanding the psyche as part of the psychosomatic system and shows how the separation of mind and body is impossible, illogical, and unhelpful. Traumas are always psychosomatic events, whether seemingly a physical trauma or a psychological trauma. Using many case examples, Ruppert explores the underlying issue of relational trauma, the perpetrator/victim dynamics at play. His exploration and developed theories of perpetrator and victim look deeply into the nature, origins and rationale of perpetration as, in itself, a result of traumatisation. It is not helpful to think of perpetrators as just 'evil'; we have to understand how the person becomes a perpetrator, the context of the perpetrator, sometimes over several generations. This is an exciting book. Ruppert has the ability to reach beyond the conventional boundaries of psychotherapeutic thinking, questioning some of our basic assumptions and building on our accumulated knowledge. He brings a sharp, scientific eye to the complex world of consciousness and the psyche, the results of which can only enhance our understanding.
