D.W. Winnicott Revises Psychoanalysis, 1945-1971

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl, JHI Scholar-in-Residence
presented by The Jackman Humanities Institute and the Health, Arts and Humanities Program

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl did a PhD in Philosophy at the New School for Social Research, just at the moment that Hannah Arendt became a member of the Graduate Faculty there. For five years she was Arendt’s student, finishing her degree and joining the faculty at Wesleyan University shortly before Hannah Arendt died in 1975. Arendt’s émigré friends asked her to write the biography that appeared in 1982 to much acclaim: Hannah Arendt-For Love of the World.

For the next twenty years, Elisabeth had an academic career, writing a number of books, including the one that drew her into the world of psychoanalysis: Anna Freud-A Biography (1988). She did psychoanalytic training, first in New Haven, working with Hans Loewald, and then in Philadelphia, where she graduated in 1999 and was certified by the American Psychoanalytic Association two years later, after opening a practice in New York. In recent years, starting with The Anatomy of Prejudices in 1996, her writing has been predominantly in the field of psychoanalysis, its practice and history.

She is currently starting a new biographical-historical project, having been appointed General Editor of the Collected Writings of D.W. Winnicott by the Winnicott Trust in London. Her talk will be an introduction to Winnicott’s work and particularly to his general concept of child development. You will also learn how to play a game called Squiggle.

Moderator: Dr. Rex Kay

Rex Kay is a graduate, member, faculty and supervisor at the Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis and a faculty member and supervisor at the Institute for the Advancement of Self-Psychology. He is a founding editor of Ars Medica: A journal of medicine, the arts and humanities. Dr. Kay received the Mary Seeman Award for contribution to psychiatry and the humanities, the Allan B. Tennen award for psychotherapy supervision, and the Wightman-Berris Academy award for undergraduate teaching. He is especially interested in creativity, narrative, and the interface between psychotherapy and the arts and allied sciences.

This event is free and open to the public.
