Image of book cover: Lost in Transmission

A central thesis of this volume is that what human beings cannot contain of their experience – what has been traumatically overwhelming, unbearable, unthinkable – falls out of social discourse, but very often onto and into the next generation.

Lost in Familiar Places: Creating New Connections Between the Individual and Society is a publication by Edward R. Shapiro, MD and A. Wesley Carr.

"We live in a world of accelerating change, marked by the decline of traditional forms of family, community, and professional life. Both within families and in work-places individuals feel increasingly lost, unsure of the roles required of them. In this book a psychoanalyst and an Anglican priest, using a combination of psychoanalysis and social systems theory, offer tools that allow people to create meaningful connections with one another and with the institutions within which they work and live."
