Alain Braconnier: A crisis of transmission?

The author explores the links between crisis of transmission, crisis of transgenerational identifications, and crisis of identity, and the effects these have on adolescents’ identity construction. In our clinical practice, are we not confronted with the conflicts of these three domains and are we not, in the transference (and counter transference) potential supports for the three modes of object relations with the adolescents and families we encounter?
