Dear Colleagues.

For the last post before the New Year, there are several special treats on the international psychoanalysis website, which I list as my picks for the week. Thankfully, the world news seem to be relatively less eventful, and this being a holiday week I hope that you have more time to read, enjoy, and comment on the posts.
Here are my choices:

1) First of all, I just pre-registered for the Symposium 2014 at Mount Sinai Medical center in NYC and urge you to do likewise. Please read the Description and Program in the Announcements.

2) Please see the fabulous paintings and exhibits in the ART section.
