Citizen Forum: One Year Later at IPTAR

The Gould Center for Psychoanalytic Organizational Study and Consultation Citizen Forum: One Year Later
A Facilitated Group Event — MARCH 5, 2018 7:30-9:30PM at IPTAR Conference Room

The social and political partisanship that characterized the 2016 election has continued. As citizens, we have been subjected to a cascade of actions and pronouncements that has differed dramatically in tone and substance from anything we have experienced before. After a chaotic and fragmented beginning that led to failure in executing goals, those in power have coalesced to carry out their agenda in a manner that has been shocking even to many of those who are members of the same political party. While there has been some movement within our governmental system to assert checks and balances on what is feared to be moral corruption and emotional instability at the highest level, those whose side lost the 2016 election have been rendered powerless as major changes are taking place. However, there are also signs that the opposition is mobilizing with some initial success. (more…)

Dear Colleagues,

The snow having finally melted after the deep freeze for the last week or so, we might rejoice if only we were not hearing the tweets from the WH and the language that you don’t want your children listen to and worry about the inaccurate warning about a missile headed for the north west, and on and on in the world news.  I have browsed through our international psychoanalytic website to gain some peace of mind and will again list my favorite posts below, followed by the list of contents.  Please comment on the posts as you read.

My choices:

1) Please note that there are a number of Announcements on the development and treatment of children:
a) The Child Today: A Presentation and Round-Table Discussion at Après-Coup

b) Understanding and Coping with Childhood Aggression with Wendy Olesker, Ph.D. at NYPSI.
