Save the Date: Saturday, March 21

On Saturday March 21, I will be discussing my new book, The Last Psychoanalyst at CMPS, 16 West 10th Street, New York City. Entrance is under the stairs. The meeting will begin at 11:00 a.m. and will last until 2:00. It has been sponsored by the Unbehagen Salon, associated with Division 39 of the American Psychological Association.

The conversation is entitled: The Last Psychoanalyst: Does Psychoanalysis Have a Future or Is It All in the Past?

Participants will also include psychoanalysts Scott Von and Christopher Bandini. The discussion will be introduced by psychoanalysts Tracy Morgan and William Braun.

It promises to be a fun time.

Congratulations Stuart. I'd definitely watch if it was recorded for online replay.

I hope your discussion can include context, since its often unclear to me whether "psychoanalysis" is a monolithic field or whether there are really 100 different branch practices that are related, each with strengths and weaknesses.

I'm assuming Jungians also consider themselves psychoanalysts, but I'm not sure.

And secondly, I'm sure people will be more interested in your opinions what will replace this dying field you see.

Myself, I've yet to talk to someone in person who has said they were in "traditional" psychoanalysis where you lie on a couch and never look at your therapist. Of course people do keep such things private.

But anyway its all more mythic and imaginary than real to me.

Maybe Minnesota was just too much "flyover territory" for the psychotherapists to bother us?
