An Elder Shares his Legacy with Gilbert Kliman, MD

Nov 28 • 53:33

“The students are fascinated to see that someone who ordinarily they know behind the couch can be on the stand and try to influence social justice, and influence foster care systems, influence schools, churches and often corporations.” ...

Meet the IPA's New President: Harriet Wolfe, MD

Nov 14 • 43:38

"A large group [of analysts] sitting in the circular Tavistock manner talked about their reactions to the state of the world. It wasn’t just about the law about Poland and the Holocaust but also about the populist movements that were gaining ground in many places. The psychoanalysts were saying ” What can we do? What can psychoanalysts do?” I thought to myself “Well, the I...

Off the Couch and into the Political Arena with John, Lord Alderdice FRCPsych (Oxford)

Oct 31 • 57:36

"I decided I would try to understand things psychologically because it seemed to me that the current wisdom that people were acting as rational actors operating in their own best interests didn’t actually fit the facts. Many people and communities were doing things that were harmful to themselves.  I thought, ‘Well, one profession that spends a lot of its time exploring wh...

Why Do We Read Books? Literature and Psychoanalysis with Merav Roth, Ph.D.

Oct 17 • 49:35

"I jump into a book - we take a book into our hands, and I become everybody, everywhere in every era. I become Emma Bovary - it is a very famous expression by Flaubert saying, “I am Emma Bovary, Emma Bovary c’est moi.” I become someone else in a different place, in a different time, in a different body, sometimes in a different sex. I can even become an alien, a princess, ...

The 4th Wall and the Movable Analytic Frame with Isacc Tylim, PsyD

Oct 3 • 32:25

"The frame begins to cry - something gets broken in the analytic session. What do we do then? We interpret just based on early material, what we know about the patient, some kind of reconstruction?  Or are we facing a piece of reality that cannot be analyzed, just analyzed. It might be acknowledged that you have to face it in some way or other, and this is the similarity w...

Presidential Reflections on Psychoanalysis with Virginia Ungar, MD (Buenos Aires)

Sep 19 • 41:33

“First, when we started to work online, it was exhausting. Now, I cannot say it is exhausting at the same level but it is still exhausting. You feel very tired and you miss the in-person contact. It has been more than one and a half years...I think that we will be able to think about the consequences and the impact of working in this way, and in the upcoming years we will ...

Fifty Years On, a Survivor of Torture Reflects on his Therapeutic Practice with John Schlapobersky, BA MSc (London)

Sep 5 • 01:09:58

They forced me into this tiny little interrogation room off the big anteroom, a whole mob of policemen shouting and screaming. I thought I would perish there, that I was going to die there and then, which was exactly what they wanted me to think. Their intention was to overwhelm me with terror, and they did. But then Swanepoel’s interrogation partner, a man named Harvey Ri...

The Return to the Office with Marilia Aisenstein, Part II

Aug 22 • 37:03

I observe what many of the French analysts and my supervisees say [about online treatment] - they are absolutely happy by how fantastic the patients talk, they talk much easier than before, they have dreams, and they relate their dreams and even sexual fantasies which they never did before. I understand them of course because they talk to them as easily as they would talk ...

Cultural Complexity: Palestinian Therapist - Jewish Patient with Roney Srour, PhD

Aug 8 • 44:50

A decade ago I started to tell my colleagues that there is something big here in the therapeutic room and if we don’t talk about it in the room and in supervision there’s something we are missing here. We are not talking just about two people who can speak only on the humanistic level - just to be human one to the other or a good object one to the other. We have to talk ab...

Large Groups, Diplomacy, and Psychoanalysis with Vamik Volkan, MD

Jul 25 • 48:43

"Thousands or millions of people who will never meet each other sharing certain sentiments - these sentiments have historical, cultural and linguistic backgrounds. When I started this, of course, conflicts between large groups have certain realistic aspects as you can imagine: political, personal and legal ones, but underneath those I figured out that everything is in the ...
