Members Present offers a forum for all members to present their work in many different formats. On April 17th, Helen Schoenhals Hart showed a film, for which she had written English sub-titles, about Ernst Federn, who had been picked up by the Nazis three days after they occupied Austria. Federn, a Trotskyist, was sent first to Dachau, and then to Buchenwald. He survived the camps and told his story of life under terror to the filmmaker, Wilhelm Rosing, and his wife, Marita Barthel-Rosing. The film is a horrifying look at life in the camps. Ernst Federn is the son of Paul Federn, an analyst who joined the Vienna Psychoanalytic Association in 1903, and was a close confident of Freud’s. He emigrated to New York and was an influence in the development of psychoanalysis in the US.

How Does the Work of the IPA's COCAP Promote Practice of Child Psychoanalysis?

How Does the Work of the IPA’s COCAP Promote Practice of Child Psychoanalysis?

by Mali Mann MD

 

This article was reprinted in its entirety from the newsletter of the Association for Child Psychoanalysis/Spring /2016 and sent in by Mali Mann, MD.

As a child psychoanalyst/ psychiatrist and Chair of Northern America Committee on Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis of IPA, I constantly try to evaluate and compare the value of many types of child treatment modalities including child psychoanalysis. To me demonstrating the relevance and clinical indications of child analysis for the emotional disorders of childhood is a crucial goal for our profession. My hope is to create a sufficient appeal to individuals inside and outside of psychoanalytic organizations and child psychoanalytic training centers.

"Psychoanalysis and Social Injustice: A personal call to participate

“Psychoanalysis and Social Injustice: A personal call to participate”

by Mary Margaret McClure, DMH

 

For all of us who have chosen to work as psychotherapists and psychoanalysts in our effort to understand ourselves and the psyche, it is always a challenge keep in mind the social and cultural world that surrounds us all and is in us all. We hope to transform pain and suffering by creating a space for thinking, but in psychoanalysis we risk attending to the internal world in retreat from or as a way to cope with the confounding problems and the terrible pain in the world around us. In our dedication to psychoanalytic principles we must develop our capacity to consider social injustice, environmental issues, and other sources of suffering in our world.

Becoming a Training Analyst/Supervising Analyst in 2016 and Beyond

SFCP, in anticipation of coming changes at APsaA and in concert with psychoanalytic education centers nationally, is taking a fresh look at the procedures for developing psychoanalysts who will analyze and supervise future candidates. To that end, community wide discussions will be taking place in the hopes of reaching a consensus about the kind(s) of writing and presenting requirements we want for our future TA/SAs.
