Local notes

How can I get back the life I believed was lost?” Theodor Seifert sees this as the central question in the fairy tale “Snow White.”

For the psychotherapist it is a daily experience to hear patients say they “feel dead,” that “life is passing [them] by,” that they are “spectators but not participants.” Seifert views the fairy tale as a wellspring of wisdom where one can find trustworthy solutions to problems. The central problem he treats in his interpretation of “Snow White” is relationship: “Can my frozen feelings come to life again?” “Can I make a new beginning, or must I live out a living death?”
