Seducing NPAP Unbelievers, Will and Tracy, TOMORROW, SUNDAY 6:30 pm

Just a reminder tomorrow Sunday 6:30 pm at NPAP so proud to present Will and Tracy. Please do come to see them exhort, mobilize and libidinize in a presentation on bringing psychoanalysis to the world – offensively (as in not defensively), passionately, on its own terms, not translated into CBT, DBT but in its own tongue (if there is such a thing) through an activist sensibility. Please come, your energy and presence will make a difference.

The Program Committee and The Public Relations Committee
of the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis Invite you to consider
The Couch in the World: Or, Seducing Unbelievers: Psychoanalytic Interventions in the Public Sphere
William H. Braun and Tracy Morgan

Dear Colleagues,

with apologies for having temporarily suspended writing for 3 weeks due to various unforeseen circumstances, I return, along with the balmy spring weather and sunshine on the east coast, to update you on the latest posts on the international psychoanalytic website. I hope that you have at least scanned it during my silence. The world has not stood still, nor has the activity on the website. As usual, I will give you my favorites followed by the regular list of contents. I have not gone back all the weeks I missed, hence some of the political posts (Sarajevo, etc.) are missing. If interested, please do look them up.

My choices this week are:

1) The Dim Sum of the CAPA group at the Chicago meetings deserves your attention!
