Join us for a clinically rich and socially relevant discussion with renowned psychoanalyst and author, Sue Grand, PhD.
Across the globe, neo-fascism is on the rise and democracy is at risk. This ominous turn calls for psychoanalytic decoding. This presentation argues that we are all carrying totalitarian objects and perpetrator fragments, inherited from our forebears’ psyches and culture. These parts have a dissociated life inside us; they haunt our interiors, and our collectives; and they inscribe forgotten aspects of our collective history. They are enacted in intimate spaces, in gun violence, and in our political scene. To examine this form of trans-generational transmission, we will look at the intimate space of clinical process in the context of our larger socio-historical predicament.
