What does psychoanalysis have to say about the human tendency to both know and not know at a time when our collective and individual minds are under assault? How does the bombardment of "alternative facts" and propaganda- designed to attack our very truth 'instrument'-interweave with self-deception? With denial and distortion interfering on such a massive scale, the global and personal damage is palpable and is mirrored in battles for sanity within analytic practice. What does the theory of the unconscious have to offer?
Join us for a discussion on the distortion of truth, from within and without, and the manipulation of public opinion in our times of misinformation, with psychoanalysts, Gordon Yanchyshyn MD (Toronto, TPS), Endre Koritar MD (Vancouver, WBCPS), and William Massicotte PhD (Montreal, QEBCPS).
Organizing Committee: Vivienne Pasieka, PhD, Chair, Gavril Hercz MD, Karen Dougherty MA, Simran Chahal MA, Ricky Varghese PhD.
