Having been inspired by her two great therapists Sabina became a psychoanalyst herself. Here life dramatically changed after her return to the Soviet Russia.

Karl Abraham. Character-Formation (In Russian)

Edward Glover. Basic Psychoanalytic Concept (In Russian)

In his articles written in 1921-1925 a classic of psychoanalysis Karl Abraham (1877-1925) expands the conceptions of oral, anal and genital phases of development and studies the influence of pre-genital and genital dispositions of the sexual impulse (the libido) on human character which he defines as a sum of instinctive reactions on social surroundings. The author shows that sexual impulse after having been repressed is not open to sublimation. Instead having regressed to pre-genital levels of development it either results in a formation of symptoms or forms character traits which symbolize child’s bodily functioning and determine the attitude to the I and to the objects. Special attention is paid to the destiny of sadistic impulses on different stages of development. Abraham discusses patient’s character analysis as one of the most difficult but gratifying objectives of psychoanalysis.
