Dear Colleagues,

As the lovely autumn weather continues to be a comfort and we have all settled back to work after the summer vacations, I urge you to take some time on this long weekend to read the very interesting posts on the international psychoanalytic website, which as Dr. A. Richards points out, never sleeps.

I have chosen to list a few posts which were of interest to me below, but please find those that target your own expertise or interest as well.

My choices:

1) I Highly recommend Dr. Fred Busch’s new book: Creating a Psychoanalytic Mind: A Method and Theory of Treatment. Please read the reviews.

2) Again in the books category – more on the effect of loneliness on physical and mental health.

3) Did you know that reading Chekhov is preferable for your social skills than Danielle Steel?

4) If we are to apply psychoanalytic thinking to societal needs we need to keep in mind the comments by David Bornstein in the NYT when he writes: Who Will Heal the Doctors? He outlines the dilemma of the needs of the people as opposed to the requirements of the current system.

5) Those of you who are opera lovers, please celebrate Giuseppe Verdi’s 200th anniversary by reading the article on our website in the Music Category.
