Bettina  Alberti - Mental Rubble


Second-generation wounds

The children of the generation who were children during the Second World War might have been spared the horrors of the actual war. Yet they often bear psychological injuries, which are manifested in such feelings as deep loneliness, a diffuse, depressed attitude toward life, and fear of their own emotions. Even 65 years after the end of the war, many people suffer from a wide variety of traumas. As a person born in 1959 put it: "Our parents cleared away the rubble of the destroyed houses with their hands – we, the next generation, are busy with the clearing away of mental rubble." The experienced psychologist Bettina Alberti shows how it is possible to recover the language of the spirit.
