Another Definitive Study from Germany: Psychoanalysis better than CBT for depression

Saturday, November 17th, 2012
Huber, Klug and colleagues have published this work in German and it will be in Psychiatry next year. IP.net readers get it now.
 
This is a  remarkable effort: a three-year follow-up study  comparing psychoanalytic, psychodynamic and CBT treatment in a carefully diagnosed group.
 
More of this works needs to be done.
 
Bravo to Huber, Zimmerman, Henrich and Klug. And thanks to Kathy DeWitt for sending this to us.

Ticho, Part IV: Drawing Conclusions: Psychoanalysis as Journey and its Aesthetics
  
Here is the conclusion of this rapid swoop through Western literature in order to examine what conceptual ideas about inner life contributed to Freud’s ability to construct a more elaborate view of the dynamism of our inner worlds.
I am grateful to Arnie Richards and IP.net to be able to offer all four parts of this talk to my colleagues and welcome your comments.

Mimesis of Inner Lives in Western Literature: How We Got Our Ideas About Inner Life.
Ticho Memorial Lecture  Chicago, Am. Psychoanalytic Association June 2012

N. Szajnberg, MD

Part I: Bible and Homer: on Character; on Parenthood.

This paper’s idea first rose with Saul Bellow in 1970.  He promised, in our seminar on Joyce’s Ulysses, that the only book of literary criticism I would ever have to read is Auerbach’s Mimesis: The Representation of Reality in Western Literature.  Several decades later, to design a course for the Hebrew University, I used this grand text as a loom with which I wove the literary and aesthetics threads of our psychoanalytic fabric: concepts of person, parent-child relatedness, intimacy, development, journey as soul-cure, with a guide for this treacherous journey.  Just as Freud turned to an Antique Greek myth to understand a Victorian state of mind; just as Ticho articulated contributions of German thinking to Freud’s ideas; or, Makari uncovered three nineteenth Century strands that Freud wove together into a new view of the psyche; just as Bettelheim explored linguistic contributions to concepts of psyche and eros (Freud and Man’s Soul), so, I will cull selections of Western literature# to examine how and when certain concepts developed, and crystallized into how we think about inner life.  (more…)

Part II: Christ’s Tale: On (not) Outgrowing One’s Godhood; Dante: the Intimate Trail of Treatment

We continue with ideas of inner life, intimacy and now, an early form of psychoanalytic treatment in Western canon. We have Borges’ deeply humanistic scent of Christ; for Dante, we have Dante himself on treatment of an ailing soul.

N. Szajnberg, MD

The Christ tale:
A man born human, believes himself divine and dies knowing that he is but human (Borges). (more…)

Nathan Szajnberg’s Ticho Award Lecture Part III

Part III: Shakespeare’s Invention of the Human:

Generating Our Own Miseries or Not
Lear and his obverse, Prospero
Let’s leap to Shakespeare, that poet whom Harold Bloom said invented the human. Were we to have time for Lear alone, this would be enough. But, let us press ourselves and place King Lear and Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest, aside each other like twinning, flickering stars to learn how one’s gravity affects the other and enlightens ourselves in turn.
Borges suggested that the tragic man is one who realizes he is in the tsunami’s
