Soffrire senza patire: limiti e potenzialità individuali e sociali


In this paper are investigated the common elements of prevalent diseases in our society. In particular the statistic correlation between addiction and alexithymia, the storical evolution from a common somatic dimension to a emtpiness, the comorbidity to depression and the importance of traumatic experiences, the mentalisation and affect regulation. After analysing these elements we focus on the question: could the difficulty to draw the suffering and problems of identity be a vulnerability both at individual and social levels? Limitations and potentialities are highlighted.
