Dear Colleagues:

As the winter doldrums continue and the violence in the world is keeping up pace, our government threatens a partial shut down and children face a much longer school year due to snow days, what good is there happening on our planet? I turn to the international psychoanalytic website, as it is usually pretty accurate in how it follows national and international events and trends , for solace.

Donations to InternationalPsychoanalysis.net

Posted October 4th, 2014 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Announcements

Internationanalpsychoanalysis.net has flourished in a remarkable way since it was launched in January 2007. It has become both an archive and a news source.

One of the serendipitous outgrowths of its presence and has been that we have even more reasons to experience ourselves as a community with a history, elders, anniversaries, anecdotes, a paper trail, photos and relics of our founders — and evidence of our on-going growth and adaptation to a very changed therapeutic world.

But the growth has outpaced the cottage and one computer.

Are you able to contribute to the cost of our widening scope?

We will use contributions to internationalpsychoanalysis.net to scan and transcribe papers, search archives, find photographs format documents and upload recordings and videos. It is labor intensive and for me a labor of love [but for the helpers, indeed, work]. Read the rest of this post »
