"Genocide, What Psychoanalysis Lost in the Holocaust"
Please note, watching this video recording is not sufficient to receive CE/CME credit.
In this third roundtable, panelists discussed what was lost when entire institutes were destroyed through emigration, war, and genocide. While some institutes like the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society were re-established, the roundtable looked at the ways the individuals, their families, organizations, and the field grappled with loss and death in the post-war period.
The three roundtables are available for viewing here:
- Roundtable 1: "After Vienna: A conversation with Otto Kernberg, MD, and Thomas Kohut, PhD"
- Roundtable 2: "Refugee Psychoanalysts 1920-1955: Enriching Psychoanalysis in the Americas"
- Roundtable 4: "Beyond Forced Emigration: Contemporary Émigré Experience in Psychoanalysis"
