Psychoanalysis/psychiatry/science/the brain and humanism on IP.net from Sasha Rolde

Dear Colleagues,

The loss of life globally whether is is passengers in commercial aircrafts, soldiers and civilians in the middle east, mental health workers in hospitals, or just starving children and victims of infections – all seems uncontrollable. We all look for psychological explanations, and with that in mind I will give you my choices on the international psychoanalytic website as well as the list of contents. Perhaps we and the philosophers have an answer. Personally I am beginning to think that what is happening in the world is the primordial nature’s attempt to keep the human population down and manageable. Animals kill each other and survival of the fittest seems to have kept life on earth going. Any other ideas?

Here are my choices:

1) I encourage all of you to read about the upcoming colloquium: “On the Subject of Psychiatry and the Subject of Psychoanalysis at APRÉS-COUP” as it outlines the current humanistic dilemma facing psychoanalysts and psychiatrists.

2) Boston is featured this week in the Audio/Video Category – The Beth Israel Hospital with opening Mental Health Notes to Some Patients, and the BPSY with a phenomenal wideo for the Third Annual Solange Skinner Conference re Freud’s “Remembering, Repeating and Working Through”.

5) On the subject of “psychoanalytically minded” philosophers, please note among other details of his background that Henri Bergson married Louise Neuberger, a cousin of Marcel Proust, and had a dead daughter, Jeanne.

7) If stress tend to promote building of negative memories, is cortisol not increased in situations of positive stress, or is there no such thing as only positive stress? See the Science News Category.

8) The fractured world we live in: As a counterpoint to all the posts on Science, it seems that 5 states wish to make our children scientifically illiterate by teaching creationism.

II. Donations to InternationalPsychoanalysis.net
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]***.
