Upcoming Courses & Events
Furthering the discourse begun in Sue Saperstein’s 2016 NCSPP Course “Difference Matters!,” four individual clinicians commit to speak to the inclusion and clash of radical differences. This dialogue, facilitated by four racially and culturally dissimilar voices, will bring forward the theoretical, historical, and philosophical disparities in our current climate. Our practice of speech is intended to open a necessary, ethical discourse so as to keep learning from the Other and our Otherness.
We are currently witnessing the rise of fascist-like leaders globally, and, most alarmingly, in Europe as well as our own country. We observe how these leaders and their adherents collude to form basic assumption groups that could swiftly undermine our western democratic values and institutions.
In this seminar, we will explore various psychoanalytic contributions that can enhance our understanding of the totalitarian states of mind that spark these dangerous movements.
