Lewis Aron, Ph.D. Discusses his New Book "A Psychotherapy for the People: Toward a Progressive Psychoanalysis"
How did psychoanalysis come to define itself as being different from psychotherapy? How have racism, homophobia, misogyny and anti-Semitism converged in the creation of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis? Is psychoanalysis psychotherapy? Is psychoanalysis a "Jewish science"?

In this presentation, Lewis Aron will provide an overview of his recent scholarship on the history of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis and their implications for practice and education.  Inspired by  the progressive and humanistic origins of psychoanalysis, Lewis Aron and Karen Starr pursue Freud's call for psychoanalysis to be a "psychotherapy for the people."  The present a cultural history focusing on how psychoanalysis has always defined itself in relation to an "other."  At first, that other was hypnosis and suggestion; later it was psychotherapy.

Thomas Janoski, Ph.D., a faculty member of Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center, and a Psychoanalyst and Psychotherapist in private-practice will be the discussant.

Lewis Aron, Ph.D. is the Director of the New York University Post doctoral program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis.  He is the author and editor of numerous articles and books on psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, including A Meeting of Minds and the Relational Perspectives Book Series.  He was one of the co-founders of the journal Psychoanalytic Dialogues.  He has served as President of the Division of Psychoanalysis (39) of the American Psychological Association; founding President of the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP); founding President of the Division of Psychologist-Psychoanalysts of the New York State Psychological Association (NYSPA).  He is the co-founder and co-chair of the Sandor Ferenczi Center of the New School for Social Research, and an Honorary Member of the William Alanson White Psychoanalytic Society.  He practices and leads numerous study groups in New York City and Port Washington, NY.
