Here I’m Alive: The Spirit of Music in Psychoanalysis with Adam Blum, PsyD, Peter Goldberg, PhD, & Michael Levin, PsyD

May 4 @ 12:00pm - 4:00pm EDT

This panel will explore how music comprises the forms of collective living in which the body finds its place in psychical life. The presentations will describe the ways that the vitality of the psychoanalytic clinical process depends at all times on this background quality of shared music, and how many of the contemporary maladies we encounter in our work reflect the sensory and emotional isolation of those who remain dissociated from this musical weave of human being. The presenters will use selections of music, draw upon clinical theory, and provide a link to philosophy, neuroscience, and cultural history to frame a discussion of the musical dimension of our psyche-soma-social world.
