Categories: Announcements, Movies

WCSPP’s Film Committee invites you as our guests to our winter event, a film screening of “My Life As A Dog” with discussion led by Robby Gaines and Barbara Messer.

This film, released in 1988, was widely hailed as a work of tremendous depth, probing a child’s life experience in the face of his mother’s untimely illness and death, already having been left by his father. Slowly learning the ways of people and the pain of loss, he comes to understand and survive, ultimately finding, in a network of relationships, the means to anchor himself in a more grown-up Read the rest of this post »

Categories: Books

This is one of our occasional book reviews of “orphaned” books: those that may be reviewed in a few years, but IP.net readers get a preview now.
The Anna Freud Tradition, edited by Marburg and Raphael-Leff, may be one in a series of Karnac books that look at various schools of psychoanalysis.

From the Poetry Editor: An Interjection in Time of Mourning

I don’t need to remind you of what poetry does to help us live our lives; I know you know that very well indeed. But here is an interjection of my own, at a time when we are simultaneously mourning the horrific recent gun deaths and trying to rally ourselves to activity and legislation.
