JARAMILLO CARUSO DE AZEVEDO, Luciana; FERES-CARNEIRO, Terezinha; BRANDAO, Eduardo Ponte  and  LINS, Samuel Lincoln Bezerra. The concept of psychic transmission in Freud: the prospect of René Kaës. Pensando fam. [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.2, pp.162-176. ISSN 1679-494X.

The current study aims to present - according to René Kaës’ perspective - the formulation of the psychic transmission concept. Kaës locates the origin of this concept in Freud’s first reflections on the issue of heredity, which begin in his so-called “pre-psychoanalytic” publications and extend until his last writings. Freudian reflections on heredity serve as a foundation for the concept of psychic transmission used by René Kaës, of primary importance to family psychoanalysis, expanding such clinic.

Keywords : Heredity; Psychic transmission; Psychoanalysis.
