Norma Sheard

Born in Harlingen, New Jersey, a small rural town near Princeton, Norma Sheard began writing as a young girl. Her topics drew upon the landscape of farm and family life, as they do now. A regular contributor to the rich poetry community in and around Princeton, she now lives on Deer Isle, Maine, where she continues to write and to sing in a choir, something she has done for many years.

More history: Freud, Heidegger, religion/wars, antisemitism, & wuhan from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Posted October 5th, 2014 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Books

Dear Colleagues:

The international psychoanalytic website is brimming with more historical material as it pertains to psychoanalytic thinking and development as the events were happening, be it their influence on Heidegger, Freud, Lacan and others, and on our theory – as in child development.
Spurred on by recurrent war efforts, this material is timely once again. Please note that I have attempted to avoid posing announcements of events which I had listed in the past few weeks, to avoid repetition.

My choices this week are:

1) For a detailed and personal documentary on how our own life experiences affect our work as psychoanalysts please read “Steven Kuchuck sits down with Tracy Morgan of the podcast New Books in Psychoanalysis” in the Audio/Video Category.

Donations to InternationalPsychoanalysis.net

Categories: Announcements

Internationanalpsychoanalysis.net has flourished in a remarkable way since it was launched in January 2007. It has become both an archive and a news source.

One of the serendipitous outgrowths of its presence and has been that we have even more reasons to experience ourselves as a community with a history, elders, anniversaries, anecdotes, a paper trail, photos and relics of our founders — and evidence of our on-going growth and adaptation to a very changed therapeutic world.

But the growth has outpaced the cottage and one computer.

Are you able to contribute to the cost of our widening scope?

We will use contributions to internationalpsychoanalysis.net to scan and transcribe papers, search archives, find photographs format documents and upload recordings and videos. It is labor intensive and for me a labor of love [but for the helpers, indeed, work]. Read the rest of this post »

Halloween, ambivalence,the Holocaust, therapy changes the brain from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Posted October 3rd, 2014 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Announcements, Books, Obituaries

Dear Colleagues:

When I was growing up this day was a relifious holiday and was called “All Souls Day” . I don’t recall it being scary or threatening as in “trick”. It is interesting to me that the day, like so many things in the world, has morphed into a scary occurrence despite the effort to “give treats” exemplifying the ubiquitous ambivalence and the love/hate human condition.

I turn to the international psychoanalytic website this week to give you a sampling of my own choices as well as the entire menu. I see the above in many of the posts and hope that you will comment. N.B. As in the past, I have NOT included previous announcements, so please check them all.

My choices this week are:

1) Please note the new thriving addition to IP.net, namely the IPBook.net

We have come to the start of an ending of a wonderful experience. For me this training has been the adventure of a lifetime. I have cherished learning a culture that seemed almost new to me.
