Iraq, inhumanity, narcissism, autism & Woody Allen from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Dear Colleagues,

As the Fall is slowing making its entrance and we are getting ready to start the new work year, please enjoy the last week of August reading the varied post on the international psychoanalytic website, most relevant to our daily lives, world and local news and of course to our work.
My choices this week are:

1) “ As if it isn’t bad enough to view videos and hear about people being killed – if you can, read about the cultural devastation in Iraq.

Before the world witnessed the full force of the Islamic State’s brutality in the video this past week showing American journalist James Foley’s murder, a different video revealed another kind of destruction the terrorist group is bent on inflicting. (more…)

Donations to InternationalPsychoanalysis.net

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

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]. (more…)

Poincare, WWI, Roy Schafer, who is a psychoanalyst? from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

Dear Colleagues,

Not only does human violence continue to mar this summer, but the nature has joined in the destruction with the Ebola virus in Africa. To escape from what seem just inescapable bad news, our international psychoanalytic website invites you to some relaxation – perhaps in the Berkshires (see my #1) suggestion) in addition to reading the posts some of which are showing echoes of past and current combats. As always I list some of my choices but hope that you will gravitate to those of interest to you.

My suggestions this week are:

1) Irene Willis’s Poetry Reading in West Stockbridge should be delightful if you can get to it.
