The Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis 
Announces New Program in Psychoanalysis and Culture

 


Dear Colleague,

Freud maintained that the "extramedical applications of psychoanalysis are
as significant as the medical ones." In my online publication,
<http://www.psych-culture.com/docs/rk-mc.html> "Making Conscious the
Unconscious in Social Reality: The Psychoanalytic Interpretation of
Culture," I suggest that psychoanalysis expands the scope of its mission by
focusing its lens "not only on events occurring within the clinical
situation, but also upon events occurring outside the clinical situation-in
social reality." But where would this project be situated?

I am happy to tell you that my colleague Professor Siamak Movahedi and
friends at the Boston Graduate School for Psychoanalysis recently have
initiated a new GRADUATE PROGRAM IN PSYCHOANALYSIS AND CULTURE, the first of
its kind in the United States to offer a MASTERS OF ARTS and DOCTOR OF
PSYCHOANALYSIS degree. The press release appears below.

I hope you will contact Dr. Movahedi to explore how you can enroll to take
courses and study in this important and exciting new program.

With best regards,
Richard Koenigsberg, Ph.D

The Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis Announces New Program in
Psychoanalysis and Culture


Brookline, MA. - The Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis (BGSP)
recently announced a new graduate program in Psychoanalysis and Culture, the
first of its kind in the United States. The program, which leads to the
Master of Arts and the Doctor of Psychoanalysis degrees, is designed to
examine the reciprocal relationship between psychoanalysis and culture in
order to more powerfully promote the knowledge of factors that underlie
personal and social change. 

"Combining the insights of psychoanalytic thought with other perspectives
from the social sciences, humanities, and cultural studies, this program
explores complex issues such as mental health, individual and social
violence, race, gender, and sexuality," said Professor Siamak Movahedi, a
psychoanalyst and sociologist involved in the design of the program. "This
program examines the individual unconscious, the socio-cultural environment
in which it operates, and the interactions between the two."

"Psychoanalysis and culture are, in many ways, at the heart of the most
creative work in the social sciences," said Charles Lemert, The John C.
Andrus Professor of Sociology at Wesleyan University and teacher in the
program. "BGSP has long been a leader in the training of psychoanalysts in
both clinical and academic research. This new program on psychoanalysis and
culture, occupies a new space on the academic map."

One concentration-Psychoanalytic Social Theory-examines media, literature,
the arts, and politics to develop a deeper understanding of the unconscious
and cultural forces affecting society. The other concentration-the Study of
Violence-focuses on contemporary issues of national and international
importance such as interpersonal violence, terrorism, and culture wars.

Graduates of the doctoral program are prepared to seek positions in academia
as researchers or teachers, or as senior administrators in mental health or
social service agencies. Clinically oriented courses are available to
supplement the Psychoanalysis and Culture studies for those interested.
Applications are currently being accepted for Fall 2008 enrollment. 

BGSP is the only regionally accredited, degree granting, independent
psychoanalytic school in the country. Since its founding in 1973, BGSP has
opened doors to psychoanalytic study to students from a wide variety of
academic backgrounds. Graduates of the school apply what they have learned
in clinical settings as well as in education, business, politics, and the
arts.
