I am sorry to inform you of the death of Maurice (Ries) Vanderpol on October 19 at the age of 92. Dr. Vanderpol was an admired psychiatrist and psychoanalyst and an important voice over the decades for those who demonstrated courage and compassion during the Holocaust.

Dr. Vanderpol was born in Amsterdam. In 1942, during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam, he went into hiding, together with his brother and mother, until 1945. In 1946, he immigrated to the United States. Having begun medical school in the Netherlands, he entered Boston University Medical School where he went on to complete his medical education.

The Body Speaks

Book Review: The Body Speaks: Body Image Delusions and Hypochondria By David Rosenfeld. Karnac, 2014.Reviewed by Nathan Szajnberg, MD

Courage comes to mind when reading these case histories. Courage in the sense of the

word’s origin, coeur, of the heart.  “Pierre”, a six foot four psychotic twenty-year old with a violent history, enters for a first session and stands near Dr. Rosenfeld.  He becomes increasingly agitated.  Shortly thereafter, as Pierre left angrily, he punched the door, broke the lock.  Rosenfeld ran down the stairs to help him.  Pierre is in and out of hospital. We listen to Rosenfeld persistence and perceptiveness to return this fellow to sanity.  And we learn the theoretical framework that Rosenfeld found helpful to work with such patients psychoanalytically.

100 Years of the IPA, Edited by Peter Loewenberg and Nellie L. Thompson

100 Years of the IPA,

100 Years of Solitude? (Not): Review of 100 Years of the IPA, Edited by Peter Loewenberg and Nellie L. Thompson (Karnac/IPA books, 2011) By Nathan Szajnberg, MD

This book’s a must-have, gotta-read, for your bookshelf at least for psychoanalysts or historians of ideas or New Yorker readers and fans of Janet Malcolm.
Loewenberg and Thompson are two scholarly historians and psychoanalysts. After four years of recruiting, writing, editing with 56 contributors from 41 countries and societies, this book could have been a hodge-podge. It isn’t; Loewenberg and Thompson pull it off. Their angle is to grab by the horns Derrida’s derisive bull — that there is practically no “homo psychoanalyticus” in Africa, Asia or the South Seas — and rassle it to the ground by studying the history of psychoanalytic geography, the variations with culture (or consistencies across cultures). And, in this book, they answer Derrida Read the rest of this post »

Freud’s legacy, tranformation of trauma, Poland then and now, & brain is not a computer from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Dear Colleagues:

the aggression in the world does not seem to diminish with time. I happen to be in Montreal as the the Canadian public is shaken but the violence in Ottawa. It is my firm belief that as psychoanalysts we have an obligation to try to exert as much influence on society as our profession can have to promote growth and maturity and prevent impulsivity and the acting out of unconscious conflicts. The international psychoanalytic website with its global readership tries to contribute to that end. This week, it encompass a range of issues from literature and art (historically growth promoting) to talks on ethics, mental illness, how the brain works and of course therapy. I will mention my own choices followed by a list of all the posts. Please chose those which relate to your own interests as well. Please note that I have not included previously posted announcements.
Let me also remind you that the editors of the website welcome any contributions you can make to it to keep it viable as it is growing.
My choices this week are:

1) How history influences us are is demonstrated admirably by Jane McAdam Freud. Please read her comments in the art section.

2) The books have it again with me- all speaking to the idea of change for the better in society. Read the rest of this post »

Sociology and Anthropology Monday
William I. (Isaac) Thomas (13 August 1863 – 5 December 1947) and Florian W. (Witold) Znaniecki (15 January 1882 – 23 March 1958)

It is fitting that Thomas and Znaniecki be treated together since their collaborative work The Polish Present in Europe and America represents the first major in-depth study of emigration and the establishment of an immigrant population in the United States. A classic of sociology, its methodology was largely dependent on the data provided by the emigrants themselves in the form of letters, diaries and other autobiographies, newspaper reports, etc. in which the subjective experiences are treated as series data for an objective study.

W. I. Thomas studied English and Classics at the University of Tennessee and continued his studies in classics and Read the rest of this post »
