Passage into Action as a Response to the Inequity of the Other: Suicidal and Homicidal Risks in Severely Traumatized Patients:

We will examine the rationale behind violent behaviors as a response to extreme cases when a meaningful Other has failed in safeguarding a place of respect, trust and protection for the emerging self. Severe trauma usually develops when the Other breaks the pact of trust, dependance and reliability. In some cases, the individual will find no other recourse in relationship to the Inequity of the Other than to make use of violent behaviors ( such as suicide attempts, homicidal acts, destruction of self or other) as a last and desperate way of making oneself heard. The difference between the concept of Acting-Out and Passage into Action will be addressed as well as their place in the analytic cure
