A DANGEROUS LEGACY

According to me, anti-Semitism as an attitude is not the worst of sins, but it is a dangerous one. It is the first step in an exclusion mechanism that starts with social avoidance and in its extreme form leads to death and destruction. That is why it should be dealt with thoroughly in public debate. . . . When a leader of an organization is caught being anti-Semitic the organization must make it clear that this was not done on its account. This is even more true for a psychoanalytic organization. Only then can things return to normal.

Funding Request for Research Proposal:
The tragedy of 9/11 women who were pregnant and widowed and their infants
Beatrice Beebe PhD; Clinical Professor, NYS Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University
Acute traumatic loss has wide-ranging effects on ordinary individuals, especially parents and children, yet infants and young children are often forgotten in a disaster. In October, 2001, Beatrice Beebe, a mother-infant researcher and therapist, together with other highly trained therapists, began a therapeutic project to try to help these women and their infants born after 9/11. This project also had a research component. Mothers and infants were seen for a video-based therapeutic consultation. Because of our therapeutic involvement we have a unique set of videotapes of mother-infant Read the rest of this post »

Dear Colleagues:

At the beginning of this month, the mood is rather sombre, drawing us back to WWII with Veterans Day, the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 and the results of elections this week, for which the turnout heralds that of 1947. These events are reflected in some of the posts on our website this week. As usual I will not list previous Announcements, will tell you my current choices followed by the entire list of contents.

My choices this week are:

1) what happened to the remaining Jewish population after WWII. Please read Jews and the Berlin Wall at Leo Baeck Institute
