The Body Speaks

Book Review: The Body Speaks: Body Image Delusions and Hypochondria By David Rosenfeld. Karnac, 2014.Reviewed by Nathan Szajnberg, MD

Courage comes to mind when reading these case histories. Courage in the sense of the

word’s origin, coeur, of the heart.  “Pierre”, a six foot four psychotic twenty-year old with a violent history, enters for a first session and stands near Dr. Rosenfeld.  He becomes increasingly agitated.  Shortly thereafter, as Pierre left angrily, he punched the door, broke the lock.  Rosenfeld ran down the stairs to help him.  Pierre is in and out of hospital. We listen to Rosenfeld persistence and perceptiveness to return this fellow to sanity.  And we learn the theoretical framework that Rosenfeld found helpful to work with such patients psychoanalytically.

100 Years of the IPA, Edited by Peter Loewenberg and Nellie L. Thompson

100 Years of the IPA,

100 Years of Solitude? (Not): Review of 100 Years of the IPA, Edited by Peter Loewenberg and Nellie L. Thompson (Karnac/IPA books, 2011) By Nathan Szajnberg, MD

This book’s a must-have, gotta-read, for your bookshelf at least for psychoanalysts or historians of ideas or New Yorker readers and fans of Janet Malcolm.
Loewenberg and Thompson are two scholarly historians and psychoanalysts. After four years of recruiting, writing, editing with 56 contributors from 41 countries and societies, this book could have been a hodge-podge. It isn’t; Loewenberg and Thompson pull it off. Their angle is to grab by the horns Derrida’s derisive bull — that there is practically no “homo psychoanalyticus” in Africa, Asia or the South Seas — and rassle it to the ground by studying the history of psychoanalytic geography, the variations with culture (or consistencies across cultures). And, in this book, they answer Derrida Read the rest of this post »

Freud’s legacy, tranformation of trauma, Poland then and now, & brain is not a computer from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Dear Colleagues:

the aggression in the world does not seem to diminish with time. I happen to be in Montreal as the the Canadian public is shaken but the violence in Ottawa. It is my firm belief that as psychoanalysts we have an obligation to try to exert as much influence on society as our profession can have to promote growth and maturity and prevent impulsivity and the acting out of unconscious conflicts. The international psychoanalytic website with its global readership tries to contribute to that end. This week, it encompass a range of issues from literature and art (historically growth promoting) to talks on ethics, mental illness, how the brain works and of course therapy. I will mention my own choices followed by a list of all the posts. Please chose those which relate to your own interests as well. Please note that I have not included previously posted announcements.
Let me also remind you that the editors of the website welcome any contributions you can make to it to keep it viable as it is growing.
My choices this week are:

1) How history influences us are is demonstrated admirably by Jane McAdam Freud. Please read her comments in the art section.

2) The books have it again with me- all speaking to the idea of change for the better in society. Read the rest of this post »

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 »

27 RUE DE FLEURUS, A SALON MEETING
OF THE CONTEMPORARY FREUDIAN SOCIETY
“Ferenczi, Yesterday and Today” with Jay Frankel Wednesday, February 4, 2015
8:00 to 10:00pm,
Location: TBA

Sándor Ferenczi was Freud=s intimate friend, colleague, and collaborator, and also a radical, independent thinker. His profoundly democratic sensibility, his insistence on providing analytic treatment to the most difficult patients, and – most important – his revolutionary conceptions in areas ranging from trauma, to object relations, to the intersubjective nature of the analytic relationship, and his developing new treatment methods based on these discoveries, ultimately estranged him from his mentor and, for decades, from the psychoanalytic world. But in the long run, his groundbreaking ideas and Read the rest of this post »
