Sigmund Freud devoted much of his professional life to the treatment and cure of many severely traumatised patients. Prof Brett Kahr, drawing upon his many years of archival research and his forthcoming book, Freud’s Pandemics: Surviving global war, Spanish flu, and the Nazis, will help us to understand how and why Freud succeeded in surviving these multiple pandemics when so many others would have succumbed to psychosis or death. Our two presenters will be joined by Dr Valerie Sinason and Prof Neil Vickers to further elaborate on some of the issues raised. 14.10 Prof Brett Kahr Freud’s Private Traumata: Surviving Horrifying Explosions Shortly after the death of Sigmund Freud in 1939, his sister-in-law, Minna Bernays, exclaimed that anyone else who had lived such a burdened life would have committed suicide. Brett will also consider how Freud might have handled the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020-2021, and how his invention of psychoanalysis might well form the basis of a “psychological vaccination”.
