Dear Coleagues:

As Gilbert Kliman reminds us, Thanksgiving Day in the USA is also The Day of Mourning observed at Plymouth in Massachusetts. This typifies our collective ubiquitous unconscious ambivalence about life and society. It is amply reflected this week on the international psychoanalytic website. I have chosen some posts to illustrate this. Please read those of your choosing and leave your comments for all our colleagues world wide.

My choices this week are:

1) The stellar book review by Nathan Szajnberg of the remarkable book “The Rangell Reader” is a must for all!

2) I recommend the interviews with Wilfred Bion and Brent Potter, as well the the video “Sybil:A Brilliant Hysteric?”

Funding Request for Research Proposal:
The tragedy of 9/11 women who were pregnant and widowed and their infants
Beatrice Beebe PhD; Clinical Professor, NYS Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University
Acute traumatic loss has wide-ranging effects on ordinary individuals, especially parents and children, yet infants and young children are often forgotten in a disaster. In October, 2001, Beatrice Beebe, a mother-infant researcher and therapist, together with other highly trained therapists, began a therapeutic project to try to help these women and their infants born after 9/11. This project also had a research component. Mothers and infants were seen for a video-based therapeutic consultation. Because of our therapeutic involvement we have a unique set of videotapes of mother-infant 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 »
