Dreaming of an Inclusive Psychoanalysis

March 27 @ 2:00pm - 5:00pm EDT

Presented in partnership with Casa de Salud’s Mental Health Collaborative with Patricia Gherovici, PhD; Harold Braswell, MSW, PhD
and Juliana Varela, LCSW.

Patricia Gherovici will compare two films documenting actual cures that push the boundaries of traditional psychoanalysis with two maverick psychoanalysts: Jimmy P: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian, a 2013 French film by Arnaud Desplechin and Adieu Lacan a 2022 film by Richard Ledes. We will see how classical psychoanalytic concepts can open up to absorb radically different cultural modes: Blackfoot myth, AfroBrazilian legend, and Arabic narratives.
