Conflict and violence in individual and group settings - Starting from an analysis of the psychoanalytic acceptation of the word "conflict", the author focuses on one of the major social-political conflicts that are currently taking place in our world. First of all, the analysis aims to evaluate what place psychoanalytic competence can take in the social sphere, differentiating this approach from other traditional points of view: i.e. political, economic, cultural, and so on. In order to give an example of the use of this specific competence, Robi Friedman was invited as a speaker. This colleague carried out experimental work with a group comprised of Israelis and Palestinians, on the theme of the mutual traumas experienced in the many conflicts that have broken out between the two populations. With Robi Friedman, the dialogue unfolding in the text allows us to identify not only the possibilities that present themselves when psychological-psychoanalytic competence is involved, but also the limits that have to be taken into consideration by those who mean to use this competence. Throughout the analysis, some significant hypotheses are put forward as to the reasons that make a conflict unsolvable. In addition, the film Munich, by Spielberg, will provide us with further effective documentation on this topic.
