Researchers in psychiatry and neuroscience are increasingly recognizing the importance of microbiota to brain communication in mental health. Scientists have established the link between gut bacteria and anxiety-like behaviours in animal models and with emotional brain regions in healthy people. Work to date by our group and others suggest that microbiota influence brain structure, gene expression of stress-related and plasticity-related genes, stress-reactivity, and behaviour. Recent work in our lab has focused on how the interaction between microbiota and host genetics influence brain structure and behaviour. Bacterial community profiling of 16SrRNA gene was carried out using a modified bar-coded Illumina sequencing method in the McMaster Genome Center in different strains of mice. Strain-specific differences in microbiota richness and diversity were observed. The taxonomic profile of the microbiota showed significant strain (more…)

Citizen Forum: One Year Later at IPTAR

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

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.

Discussion Group: Towards an Understanding of Loneliness and Aloneness at APsaA Winter Meetings in NYC

Monday, January 8th, 2018

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.

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.” >>Read more
