Aggression in children, Diego Rivera, Fran Sinatra, Carl Jung, Radio waves from space from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

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.

4)  Would you like a book to enjoy with your children and grandchildren?

please see: All Aboard by Howard Schwartz on IPBooks.net

5)  How much do you know about Carl Jung?  Glance at:  Hide and Seek: Jung: The Man and His Symbols: Carl Jung in a nutshell by Neel Burton M.D. and his photo!

internationalpsychoanalysis.net/category/books

6)  There are 8 posts on D.Trump’s mental health and mind in the general news  In the interest of time and space I won’t list them but if interested, please   go to

7)  In contrast :  Chiune Sugihara Saved Thousands of Jews during World War II, Without Defying His Government

internationalpsychoanalysis.net/category/general-news

8)   We took my mother to see Fiddler on the Roof in NYC and when we came out she said: “it will happen again”  Meanwhile this play has become popular all over the world – please read:

” A ‘Fiddler’ in Tokyo: Why has the musical been beloved in Japan for 50 years?”

9)  Radio waves from three billion light years away puzzle astronomers.  I tried the post and what puzzled me was that it was accompanied by music.  Perhaps one of you can explain whether is is man made or comes from the radio waves.

V.  Discussion Group: Towards an Understanding of Loneliness and Aloneness at APsaA Winter Meetings in NCY

Those who plan to attend the APsaA conference, at New York Midtown Hilton, in Feb. of 2018, we invite you to our clinical case hose who plan to attend the APsaA conference, at New York Midtown Hilton, Feb. 15, 2018, 7-9 PM, we invite you to our clinical case discussion group: Towards an Understanding of Loneliness and Aloneness.

Dr. Danielle Knafo will present her clinical and theoretical material that describes her treatment of a singular young Japanese man, Hisoka, who epitomized the phenomenon of Hikikomori. The hikikomori are young people who live extremely solitary lives, never leaving their homes and hardly coming out of their rooms. At the onset of therapy, Hisoka only emerged for his therapy sessions and even then he hardly participated in a usual manner. The therapeutic work involved the creation of a safe holding space within which Hisoka learned to face the derailments of his early attachments and to engage in a mutual relationship. He gradually took steps to interact with the analyst and the outside world. The experience transformed both him and the analyst.

Presenter: Dr. Danielle Knafo, CORST essay prize recipient, 2014. She is a professor in the clinical psychology doctoral program at LIU and faculty and supervisor at NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. She is the author of numerous books and articles on psychoanalytic topics including loneliness, solitude, and trauma. Also, Dr. Knafo has presented at numerous conferences.

Co-Chair : Dr. Arlene Kramer Richards: Training and Supervising Analyst IPTAR; Training Analyst New York Freudian Society and IPA, faculty Tonji Medical College. Author of numerous books and articles on topics including gender, perversion, and loneliness.

AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR PSYCHOANALYSIS IN CLINICAL SOCIAL WORK – AAPCSW
March 28-31 2019 Durham Marriott City Center/Durham Convention Center, Durham, NC
CALL FOR PAPERS Deadline March 10, 2018
www.aapcsw.org

Intrigue, Insight, Inquiry: Through Today’s Psychoanalytic Lens

In these multilayered and challenging professional times, how can we sustain excellence in clinical theory and practice? Our challenge is in safeguarding core values – individual dignity, respect for diversity, social justice advocacy – as we embrace innovations in psychoanalytic knowledge. Holding this complexity in mind, the conference aims to provide a space to explore the human condition in health and illness. We will view these ideas in relation to clinical experience, based on understanding the intersection of the inner and outer world. We will also continue to build our legacy for the next generation. Join us in our efforts at facing our challenges, and promoting depth and breadth in our insights about contemporary clinical practice.

Dr. Eric Plakun Running for APA Area 1 Trustee

According to Dr. Plakun, “As the field drifts toward a biomedical model, with 15-minute med checks becoming a frequent practice model, I hope to bring a solid biopsychosocial perspective to the Board of Trustees, representing Area 1, born out of my training, practice, and senior leadership roles at Riggs over the past 30 years, as well as my ongoing involvement and leadership in the APA and organized psychiatry.”

XXV. New From IPBooks: All Aboard by Howard Schwartz

on IPBooks.net

Dr. Howard L. Schwartz’s book of adventure stories incorporates many of the stories he has written for his five grandchildren as The Adventures of Kenny and Benny (two unpublished books). The stories are funny, scary, and exciting and, as Mark Twain wrote in his Preface to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, “are intended mainly for the entertainment of boys and girls . . . and to remind adults of what they once were themselves.”

Dr. Schwartz is a character, participant, and observer in these stories, enjoying them as he tells them. He invites his readers, young and old alike, to enjoy the journey with him.

Howard Schwartz, MD is a practicing clinical psychiatrist, specializing in psychoanalysis, for the past forty-five years.  He lives in Maplewood, NJ.

How is this book different from other books that have been written about Sinatra?

Frank Sinatra was one of the most spectacular figures of the twentieth century. There are more books and articles written about him that would attest to his popularity. He could be seen as one of the greatest entertainer, performer and singer that has ever lived. I do not intend to follow the story of his life but rather address some issues or strategies that brought him to the top. ….

LIV.  POETRY MONDAY: January 1, 2018
Monday, January 1st, 2018

Salman Akhtar

Good morning, and Happy New Year, everyone-the first day of 2018, after a tumultuous 2017.

In times like these, or at any time, it’s refreshing to read poetry, and I’m happy to say that our poet this morning is someone we’re honored to have on our pages, Salman Akhtar, who has contributed so much to our understanding of both poetry and psychoanalysis.

Dr. Akhtar, who comes from a family of renowned poets and writers in India, is himself the author of eleven poetry collections. I first encountered his work in a volume he edited called Between Hours: A Collection of Poems by Psychoanalysts (Karnac Books, 2012) and was struck by his poem in that book, “Summary.” With his permission, I was proud to include it in an anthology I edited, Climate of Opinion: Sigmund Freud in Poetry (IP Books, 2017).

Six of his eleven collections, The Hidden Knot (1985), Conditions (1993), Turned to Light (1998), After Landing (2014), Blood and Ink (2016), and Freshness of the Child (2018) contain his poems in the English language; the other five are in his native Urdu. He is also a prolific contributor to the psychoanalytic literature, having authored or edited eighty-nine books. For his distinguished contributions to psychoanalysis, he received the prestigious Sigourney Award in 2012. A psychiatrist, psychoanalyst and teacher by profession, Dr. Akhtar has been a Visiting Lecturer in Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School and currently is Professor of Psychiatry at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Supervising and Training Analyst at the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia and (probably of the greatest interest to poets) a Scholar-in-Residence at the Inter-Act Theater Company in Philadelphia.

We hope you will enjoy the following three poems by Salman Akhtar: “The Limit of Instruction,” “A Wish,” and, reprinted here from Between Hours, “Summary.” In times like these, the third one is particularly instructive.
