Developmental Psychoanalysis and the Promotion of Progressive Development: A Retrospective Discussion with Jill M. Miller, PhD at NYPSI

he New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute presents the ROBERT J. KABCENELL MEMORIAL LECTURE IN CHILD ANALYSIS

Developmental Psychoanalysis and the Promotion of Progressive Development: A Retrospective Discussion with Jill M. Miller, PhD
Tuesday, June 13, 2017 at 8:00 PM, The Marianne & Nicholas Young Auditorium, 247 East 82nd Street, NYC

Most children who enter analysis suffer from what Anna Freud called the mixed psychopathology of childhood– the interweaving of both conflict and developmental disturbances. The technical approach with these children is also mixed as the focus is not only on conflicts, but also on developmental imbalances and internal structural deficits. In this presentation detailed clinical material from the analysis of a 4 and one half-year old girl will be outlined to elucidate this approach. In addition, when looking back at an analysis one always wonders if there were alternative ways of understanding the patient and what could have been done differently, issues which will be open for discussion.

On Crew’s Freud: What’s Left? by Harvey Peskin

Posted May 22nd, 2017 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Books

 

The bare-knuckled argumentative style of Frederick Crews’ inexhaustible critique of Freud was, if you will, caught red-handed in this piece on Freud’s neglect of  anti-Semitism:

Writes Crews in his review of Roudinesco’s “Freud: In His Time and Ours”, appearing in The NY Review of Books, February 23, 2017:

“Freud was slow to recognize the Nazi menace to Jews in general and psychoanalysis in particular [and] obsessed with his privately chosen enemy, the Roman Catholic Church, blind[ed] himself to the greater threat [of Nazism].”

In fact, within the same paragraph of “Civilization and its Discontents” (Standard Edition, v. 21, pp. 114-115)––three Read the rest of this post »
