Dear Colleagues:

the aggression in the world does not seem to diminish with time. I happen to be in Montreal as the the Canadian public is shaken but the violence in Ottawa. It is my firm belief that as psychoanalysts we have an obligation to try to exert as much influence on society as our profession can have to promote growth and maturity and prevent impulsivity and the acting out of unconscious conflicts. The international psychoanalytic website with its global readership tries to contribute to that end. This week, it encompass a range of issues from literature and art (historically growth promoting) to talks on ethics, mental illness, how the brain works and of course therapy. I will mention my own choices followed by a list of all the posts. Please chose those which relate to your own interests as well. Please note that I have not included previously posted announcements.
Let me also remind you that the editors of the website welcome any contributions you can make to it to keep it viable as it is growing.
My choices this week are:

1) How history influences us are is demonstrated admirably by Jane McAdam Freud. Please read her comments in the art section.

2) The books have it again with me- all speaking to the idea of change for the better in society.

a) Werner Herzog on Creativity, Self-Reliance, Making a Living of What You Love, and How to Turn Your Ideas Into Reality

b) Mended By the Muse: Creative Transformations of Trauma ” Sophia Richman skillfully uses her own history as a holocaust survivor and writer to illustrate the healing power of the creative process. In addition to her own experience, Richman writes about artists she has interviewed, as well as theorists that have been influential to her such as Winnicott and Jung. ”

c) 10 Mind-Altering Philosophy
“2014 has been a hallmark year for works of philosophy that can genuinely impact your life (even in the immediate future) without becoming self-help nonsense. These books deal try to change what is possible in politics, sex, feminism, art, and more.

d) Doctors Tell All and Its Bad speaks to the corroding doctor-patient relationship at the the heart of the health-care crisis.
This particularly interested me as I went to a medical school where teaching was based on William Osler’s dictum: “listen to the patient”
