Nov. 23

View episodes from the Israeli television show B’Tipul and HBO’s adaption for the American screen, In Treatment, looking at the ways that psychotherapy is portrayed in both Israeli and American pop culture. Does it translate across cultures or does it diverge? Is there a “culture of therapy” and in what ways does it refract, or is it embedded within each country’s popular culture? Two 20 different patients and episodes will be screened from each series, to be followed by analysis and discussion.
