Transgendered children, optimism, depression and analysis from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Dear Colleagues,

On the eve of a long weekend, I wanted to give you the opportunity to receive the contents of the international psychoanalytic website earlier, so that you would have time to read the posts with more leisure.

The variety of posts at least in my opinion is tied loosely together by a lighter than usual tone – perhaps to lift our mood out of the doldrums of the world’s environmental, financial and political turmoil. Of course that does not preclude some serious business -as in the Announcements which include advance notice of what to expect at the APsaA Chicago meetings.

The posts I want to point out are:

1) the numerous entries in the Art Category – to make you smile.

2) Please note the 3) posts on therapy: the light hearted PRADA post, Glen Gabbard’s Psychoanalytic Therapy Session* via YouTube from The Royal Road*Psychoanalytic Approaches to the Dream and Herbert J. Schlessinger*s Colloquium On *Keeping Psychotherapy Efficient* .

3) The book review: Are You My Mother? by Alison Bechdel should be read by all – yet another book on the tortured mother-daughter relationship.

Click Here to Read This Article 

I could not help but contrast it with the small children’s book by the same name, where the protagonist has momentarily loses its mother and on its quest for her it sadly asks every animal it meets ” are you my mother” until it finally finds it’s beloved mother and is happy again. If only life could be so simple.

4) A parallel between the present and the Vienna atmosphere in Freud’s lifetime is interesting to read – history does repeat itself as no one learns from it.

5) Psychoanalysts should weigh in more on issues such as the post “Transgender Five-Year-Old” Please comment!

6) Please read about the remarkable life and accomplishments of the Education Pioneer Annemarie Roeper.

7) Yes, and all (esp. the doubters at APsaA) should read A Richer Life by Seeing the Glass Half Full. It’s now a scientific fact.

XXXIV. Review of Bully by Selma Duckler

Bully is a very popular highly rated documentary playing in first run theaters around the country now.

25 years ago a documentary of this type would have been shown to select parent teacher groups or other education/school groups, and it would have been shocking. It would not have been shown in movie theaters along with the movie fare of the day because it wouldn*t have been considered marketable*..

XXXV. Review of Jeff Who Lives at Home by Selma Duckler

Jeff Who Lives at Home is a film with a theme of loss that is advertised as a comedy, criticized as being contrived, and given consistent high ratings because it was seen as inspiring.

Jeff is a conflicted 30 year old man who belies his anxieties with a laid back manner, his bulky body in loose athletic clothing, his face, still so boy like that one easily dismisses the intense absorbed look that makes Jeff seem not quite connected with the real world. He has a soft appearance that is likable, but lacks any suggestion of strength*despite a big muscular body.
