OBAID, Francisco Pizarro. Otto Rank and the controversy on birth trauma. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2012, vol.44, n.2, pp. 423-443. ISSN 0101-4838.

In the analysis of the psychic effects of birth, Rank concluded that the separation of the womb should be considered a traumatic event, from which, not only neurosis, but also humanization in general, could be explained. What appeared to be a new contribution to the psychoanalytic cause would finally be a challenge to Freudian assumptions that defined the Oedipus complex, the father's function, castration and re pression, as the foundations of psychoanalytical theory and practice. The current work will seek to illustrate the discussions generated by the dissemination of Rank's thesis among the members of the Committee and will conclude that the hypothesis about the trauma of birth led to a genuine controversy in the history of the psychoanalytic movement and, in turn, will define Rank's final break with Freud and the members of the Committee.
