A letter from Einstein to Freud on the occasion of Freud’s seventy-fifth birthday, April 29, 193 1. The letter, though informal in tone, is rather reserved in sentiment, for though Einstein and Freud each recognized the eminence of the other, their relationship never developed into friendship.

DSM-V, Freud’s couch, terrorism, rise in carbon dioxide & more from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Posted March 22nd, 2013 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Announcements

Dear colleagues,

the international website content this week is colossal and multidimensional, and no summary of mine will do it justice. It does reflect all the concerns in the news from the psychodynamic point of view, be it terrorism, DSM-V, S. Freud’s couch, our brains or the increase in carbon dioxide content in the air we breathe. I will try not to have duplication of post which I have listed previously.

My choices this week are:

N. Szajnberg, MD, Managing Editor

Occasionally, someone quite peripheral to psychoanalysis gets the resonance of this craft.  Jeremy Denk, writing of finding his piano practice book from youth, gets the sense of what it means, how one learns a discipline — making music, making psychoanalysis, a duet of its own.

Jeremy Denk

Denk (a fine name from German, “Think.”) is a concert pianist and a remarkable essayist.  Here is the link to the New Yorker article, “Every Good Boy Does Fine,” (April 8, 2013)

Kernberg’s got ‘Street Cred’ by Nathan Szajnberg

Posted March 22nd, 2013 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: General News

Kernberg
Otto Kernberg’s got street cred: a former President of the IPA, one of our more accomplished researchers, prolific author, training analyst and faculty member of the Columbia Psychoanalytic Center. So, when he has something substantive to say about psychoanalysis, about our discipline, attention should be paid.

And Kernberg has much to say. He spoke on “The Twilight of the Training Analysis System,” at the January American Psychoanalytic meeting and an abbreviated, yet pointed version is in TAP (Spring/Summer 2013). (Link below). Read the rest of this post »

Categories: Announcements

Dear Colleagues,

I invite you to glance at this week’s international psychoanalysis website to take your attention away for a while from the world’s mostly unpleasant and worrisome news, be it earthquake in China, explosions and bombings in the USA and elsewhere. My apologies if you were just trying to finally enjoy some spring weather. The posts this week reflect some of the trauma of the news and try to put a psychoanalytic perspective on it. My choices this week are:

l) It is interesting to me to read the announcement about Anne Sexton’s therapy with Dawn Skorczewske at NYPSI, having treated her myself prior to that in Boston.
