Two recent poetry collections – one in 2012 and one just released – deal with a topic that should be of particular interest to our readers, both professionally, because so many of you are psychoanalysts and psychotherapists, but also personally, because so many have experienced it.

Recurrent themes: Govt. breakdowns, antisemitism, fear of snakes from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Dear Colleagues,

There are good news (the Red Sox win) and then there are bad news (more shooting – at the LA airport). In between is the specter of the Affordable Health Care and what this means.
