Tamara Landau

Psychoanalyst and Sculptor

Tamara Landau is a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist, sculptor and writer, editor of psychoanalytical publications, founding member of the Paris-based Société de Psychanalyse Freudienne and founder of the research group MnemoArt (art, psychoanalysis and science).

Tamara Landau leads research seminars at the Société de Psychanalyse Freudienne in Paris.

After a ten-year-long practice with drug-addicts and alcoholic patients in a clinic, she has been carrying out research for thirty years on the origin of addiction to food with female anorexic and bulimic patients in psychoanalytic treatment.

With the passing of time, she has found out that the causes of this addiction are unconscious anxieties linked with reminiscences of their fetal life. This has prompted her to elaborate the theories of the Enclave and of the Inverted Tree, which make it possible to explain and treat eating disorders using analytical therapy.

Subsequently, clinical research with pregnant women and applicants for medically assisted procreation (MAP) has enabled her to tackle the origin of the anguish of death linked with endogenous traumas experienced by all mothers during pregnancy and at childbirth.

Hence, she recommends listening carefully to pregnant or infertile women’s anxieties and fantasies, which helps avert certain pregnancy accidents (miscarriages, premature deliveries and Caesarean sections) and certain psychic and behavioral disorders arising in the child, adolescent and later adult.

She is engaged in a dialogue with researchers of I.N.S.E.R.M. and C.N.R.S. on the subject of her hypotheses, so as to create a bridge between psychoanalysis and neurosciences.

On this site you will find a list of her publications and the introduction, images and making-of of her books, which have been published in Italian and Spanish since 2015.
