PSYCHOANALYSIS, CINEMA & PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE: 
"IN TREATMENT" AS IMAGINARY SIGNIFIER

Siamak Movahedi, Ph.D., Director, Program on Psychoanalysis and Culture

This course revolves around the interface of psychoanalysis and media. We
compare the cinematic representation of psychoanalysis with current
practice. We begin the course with the psychoanalysis of film scripts,
textual systems, and perceiving subjects. We have borrowed the expression
Imaginary Signifier from Christian Metz's book (Psychoanalysis and Cinema:
The Imaginary Signifier) in order to examine the unconscious fantasies that
spectators bring to their perception of film images. We will study
controversies surrounding issues of therapeutic boundaries, analytic
parameters, and practices of self disclosure by the analyst. This will
prepare us for watching segments of the HBO TV series "IN TREATMENT" as we
offer interpretations of selected sequences of the show. Visits from
prominent Boston psychoanalysts will be part of the course.

This course may be taken by matriculating or non-matriculating students for
credit, or as a continuing education course. For information, contact Dr.
Movahedi at movahedis-AT-bgsp.edu or siamak.movahedi-AT-umb.edu

The Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis Program in
Psychoanalysis and Culture


The Master's and Doctor of Psychoanalysis (Psya.D.) programs in
Psychoanalysis & Culture offers students a cutting edge curriculum and
prepares them through interdisciplinary study for scholarly research,
teaching and professional practice.  While social scientists and scholars in
humanities and cultural studies are becoming increasingly interested in the
psychoanalysis of culture and in the cultural analysis of psychoanalysis,
very few institutions of higher education provide an arena for such
interdisciplinary undertaking. This program, the first of its kind in the
United States, has emerged to fill the gap in the academy for such critical
pursuits.  Its distinct mission is to promote systematic dialogue between
psychoanalysis, critical social theory, and cultural analysis. The program
includes a concentration in PSYCHOANALYSIS AND SOCIAL THEORY and in THE
STUDY OF VIOLENCE.
