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

Monday, January 15th, 2018

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.
