Artículo publicado por el diario La Nación sobre el impacto del aislamiento

– April 28th 2020 –

En este artículo publicado por La Nación hablo acerca de cómo “el impacto del aislamiento tiene sus particularidades en cada país, en cada cultura e incluso en cada individuo. Sin embargo, a un nivel general, las personas deben vérselas con la vivencia de soledad y distintos tipos de ansiedades, que van cambiando con el correr de los días. Se manifiestan en el aumento de la sintomatología psicosomática corporal y trastornos del sueño, entre otros indicadores”. También ha habido un aumento en la hostilidad y la violencia durante el período de encierro en distintas partes del mundo.

For the IPA it is very important to study the effects that forced migration produces when arriving to such unfamiliar places, with a language they don’t understand and facing a mourning process of having lost everything they knew.

Marianne was the director of the Sigmund Freud Institute when the Ministry of Social Affairs of the State of Hessen asked her to conceptualize a Pilot Project to support refugees.

I previously wrote to you that, at that moment, absolutely nothing had changed about the minimum standards acceptable under the IPA’s rules. I also promised that we would move forward in a spirit of sensitivity and transparency, seeking a solution which would seek to blend the differing needs and realities.
