Overview:
Everything I have written can be understood as an effort to find a sufficiently passionate form of treatment. In one of the papers in my collection, Psychoanalytic Reflections: Training and Practice (2017, IP Books) I explore how profound feelings about life and health can be integrated into an analytic approach that also honors the concept of neutrality. In this talk I consider how the clinician can inspire active hope, engage in treatment emotionally, facilitate fighting depression, and other challenges. Read the rest of this post »

The social and political partisanship that characterized the 2016 election has continued. As citizens, we have been subjected to a cascade of actions and pronouncements that has differed dramatically in tone and substance from anything we have experienced before.
