For our inaugural event in a new series, we welcome recognized author and psychoanalyst:
DODI GOLDMAN, PHD, WITH THE PRESENTATION “WINNICOTT’S MOON”
Winnicott’s Moon” marks the 50th anniversary of the death of D.W. Winnicott, arguably one of the most creative psychoanalysts since Freud. This talk offers a portrait of his sensibility, which appeals to some but confounds or even irritates others. Sensibility is different than theory. Theories can be potentially useful even if eventually proven wrong. Sensibilities, in contrast, are neither right nor wrong; they are aesthetically and emotionally resonant or not. The title, “Winnicott’s Moon,” refers to a poem Winnicott penned at the very end of his life in response to the American moon landing. A longer version of the talk appears as the concluding chapter of a forthcoming edited book, “Winnicott in America,” published by the Winnicott Trust and Oxford U. Press.
Friday, April 8th at 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Admission with CE hours: $45
