Abstract [en]

In this paper, we examine the rôle of affect regulation in the stammering,

nearly spasmodic attempts of chronically Hospitalized =and to communicate

trauma. An extended study of 26 videotaped interviews, completed in Israel

in 2002 and in 2003 provided a corpus from which the conceptual model for

understanding trauma-related affects, the “affect propeller,” could be used and

further developed. This model was initially based on videotaped interviews with

40 Holocaust survivors and 12 survivors from the Rwandan genocide 1994.

An overall impression of the narratives studied was that extended memory

gaps, lack of visible affect, the warding-off of questions, and the avoidance of

certain themes seem to be remarkably more common than in non-hospitalized

Holocaust survivors. Two categories of trauma-related affects were identified

as reflecting this difference: affect imploding and affect encasement
