Aus dem Couch Podcast

On Von der Couch Wir treffen Psychoanalytiker, die in Dialyseeinheiten, Schwangerschaftskliniken, Vorstandsräumen, Gemeindezentren, humanitären Organisationen und mit Weinbergarbeitern arbeiten, um nur einige zu nennen. Wir hoffen, dass diese Gespräche unser Bewusstsein dafür erweitern, wie weit das psychoanalytische Denken in unsere Gemeinschaften reicht. 

Von der Couch
 wird von Dr. Harvey Schwartz, Vorsitzender des IPA in Health Committee, und Dr. Steven S. Rolfe produziert und moderiert.

Episode 96: Why Do We Read Books? Literature and Psychoanalysis with
Merav Roth, Ph.D.

We begin our conversation about the reading experience with Merav sharing with us her story of growing up in a family of writers. We discuss the factors within us that lead us to read and how it shares certain similarities with the clinical encounter. She considers the use we make of literature to help us make the intolerable more playfully bearable. The work of Jorge Semprun is discussed with examples given from his memoir Literature or Life. Merav shares with us her sense that the depressive position informs and allows for a more ethical engagement with the literary experience. We close with her reading the poem Eating Poetry by Mark Strand.
Unser Gast: Merav Roth Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist and a training and supervising psychoanalyst at the Israeli Psychoanalytic Society; She is the head of the psychoanalytic psychotherapy program, Sackler School of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University; and a researcher of psychoanalysis and culture (mainly literature and trauma). She is the former chair of the interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in psychoanalysis and the former founder and chair of the post-graduate Klein studies, both at the psychoanalytic psychotherapy program, Sackler School of Medicine.
