The APT-Birmingham Public Lecture

Saturday 6 May 2023


Marica Rytovaara

The paper discusses the adolescent’s fascination with death in its developmental and destructive aspects, transience and transitions and the archetype of Death as the harbinger of change. Life and death do not
merely form a continuous loop but create a constant regenerative paradox where the dance alternates between mimesis and alterity. The talk will be illustrated by case material.

Marica Rytovaara is a Training Analyst of the SAP and on the Advisory Board of the Journal of Analytic Psychology. She is a Training Analyst for the Association of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy and a Consultant in Adolescent Psychotherapy in an NHS adolescent inpatient unit. Marica has a private practice in North London
