Noah’s Ark: Analysis as the container in which trauma can be revisited and transformed

Alessandra Cavalli

In this talk I will bring my work with a boy who lost his hearing when he was possibly 9-10 months old. His handicap was discovered only when he was 20 months old. I started working with him when he was 3 and the work lasted for 3 years. At the beginning of our work he offered the metaphor of Noah’s Ark. His trauma was contained in the biblical story he knew. I will show how we could re-live his own personal ‘deluge’, and how we found a way of transforming it.
