While these second skins may be helpful in the short term, they are, according to Anzieu, in need of analytic attention in the long term. In fact, if Freud links the most formative developmental traumas to a phantasmatic genital castration, then Mooi links them to a phantasmatic rending of the shared skin Freud, a, pp. The skin ego is not, however, straightforwardly given to the infant; it must be achieved.
