From the Publisher:
The concept of the "dead mother" refers to the child's process of mourning following maternal depression, when the child experiences the loss of love.

The Dead Mother brings together essays in honor of André Green to explore the theme of his famous paper of the same title. The concept of the "dead mother" refers to the child's process of mourning following maternal depression, when the child experiences the loss of love. Distinguished contributors from a range of fields reflect on this concept and how it contributes to other psychic syndromes. The book also includes an interview with André Green in which he talks about his life and work.

The Dead Mother brings together original essays in honour of André Green. Written by distinguished psychoanalysts, the collection develops the theme of his most famous paper of the same title, and describes the value of the dead mother to other areas of clinical interest: psychic reality, borderline phenomena, passions and identification.

The concept of the 'dead mother' describes a clinical phenomenon, sometimes difficult to identify, but always present in a substantial number of patients. It describes a process by which the image of a living and loving mother is transformed into a distant figure; a toneless, practically inanimate, dead parent. In reality, the mother remains alive, but she has psychically 'died' for the child.

This produces a depression in the child, who carries these feelings within him into adult life, as the experience of the loss of the mother's love is followed by the loss of meaning in life. Nothing makes sense any more for the child, but life seems to continue under the appearance of normality.

The Dead Mother is a valuable contribution to literature on psychoanalytic and psychotheraputic approaches to grief, loss and depression.
