The artists: Dali, Dante, Heine & Psychoanalysis : Freud, the feminists, & then the Russians from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Dear Colleagues:

An early Labor Day weekend offers an opportunity to spend time reading the interesting posts on the international psychoanalytic website. It is a time of turmoil in the world and will hopefully offer some respite as well as some insight into the societal issues.

My choices this week are:

1) For those of us who did not know much about the Islamic State – The “Fertile Crescent had been a cradle to strange and fascinating sects” – the post about the “land of lost gods” in the Art Category is a must!
Click Here to Read This Article

2) Has the Affordable Care Act really helped people receive more psychotherapy under Medicaid? Read the Article On Expansion of Mental Health Care Hits Obstacles by Abby Goodnough in the NYT.
Click Here to Read This Article

3) The artists and writers preceded us! Please read the description of Dali’s collection of prints depicting Dante’s Divine Comedy in the ART Category.
Click Here to Read This Article

4) First it was fear of flying – now it is fear of water. See the Audio/Video Category.
Click Here to Read This Article

5) And the Books have it again!. This time in volume of posts as well as the number of books related to Freud, therapists feminism & our work. Please browse the entire category.
Click Here to Read This Books Category

Personally, I was much taken by the post on Heine and Freud. Being the inheritor of the entire works of Heine which my mother at great peril secretly kept from the Germans during WWII, I can relate to this history and the interpretation of the “jewishness” of both men. Also, as we know from understanding child development, our identity always remains there conscious or unconscious.

6) Treatment of the mentally ill is discussed in a couple of posts in the General News – both in prisons and in an article on current access to therapy. Please read and comment – we need to advocate!

7) The “Russians” post evokes empathy – odd at the present time.

8) Dr. Henry Friedman’s letter to the editor of NYT on treatment of depression is a must read!!

9) and finally science explains why we are empathic and how to overwrite bad memories- in mice.
