Founder of the Libre Association Freudienne, Gabriel Balbo has been working as a psychoanalyst for more than 40 years at 88, Boulevard Saint Germain, in the Paris Quartier Latin.
With Jean Berges, he is the co-author of four reference books about child psychoanalysis:
- 1994 : « L’enfant et la psychanalyse. Nouvelles perspectives ».
- 1998 : « Jeu des places de la mère et de l’enfant; essai sur le transitivisme ».
- 2001 : « Psychanalyse, autisme et défaillance cognitive chez l’enfant ».
- 2004 : « Psychothérapies d’enfants, enfants en psychanalyse ».
He has authored more than a hundred theoretical and clinical articles. His work is based on years of analytical experience, (id est is the result of personal analysis. Without this analysis, theory would have nothing to do with clinic anymore, and the subconscious knowledge that is at its core.)
On July 14th, 2005, with about 20 of his closest friends, he founded the school La Libre Association Freudienne which now has over 50 members.
