Master of the universe: scorsese's "the wolf of wall street" through a psychoanalytic lens.

MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE: SCORSESE'S "THE WOLF OF WALL STREET" THROUGH A PSYCHOANALYTIC LENS. Am J Psychoanal. 2018 Jul 17;: Authors: Kogan I Abstract In this essay I wish to present some reflections on Jordan Belfort, the protagonist of the movie "The Wolf of Wall Street" from a psychoanalytic prism. The movie, "The Wolf of Wall Street", is a 2013 black comedy film directed by Martin Scorsese and adapted by Terence Winter from Belfort's memoir (2007) of the same name. This movie has already been analyzed from cultural and historical perspectives, with the protagonist representing American culture of the 1980s. I will first summarize some of these views, and then present my psychoanalytic perspective of Jordan's wish to become "Master of the Universe" (Wolfe, 1987; Grunb...

Countertransference dreaming: life in the intersubjective third.

COUNTERTRANSFERENCE DREAMING: LIFE IN THE INTERSUBJECTIVE THIRD. Am J Psychoanal. 2018 Jul 06;: Authors: Rachmani V Abstract In this paper the author asks, "How long is the life of an intersubjective field?" She proposes that it is possible for the field to remain active and instructive even after formal sessions have ended: This occurs in her case of Carla, a young woman who terminates prematurely. Carla enters treatment in a downward spiral of severe trauma symptoms that began subsequent to her rape, a decade earlier. Although Carla's symptoms diminish and the analysis continues to be productive, it suddenly ends in an impasse, leaving the analyst perplexed and feeling professionally insufficient. Months later, she has three dreams pertaining to Carla and her rape. L...

The interplay of the two hemispheres of the brain in psychoanalysis.

MedWorm - Mon, 2018-07-02 19:00
THE INTERPLAY OF THE TWO HEMISPHERES OF THE BRAIN IN PSYCHOANALYSIS. Am J Psychoanal. 2018 Jul 03;: Authors: Lentz JS Abstract Several authors have written intriguingly about the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Each hemisphere perceives the world differently, impacting that which it looks upon and reinforcing our particular world view. Notably, the left hemisphere, has always been assumed to be the dominant hemisphere, but only because it has language and is so adept at formulating arguments. The detached mode of the left hemisphere, while useful and necessary to get distance, is no more real than the engaged, imaginative approach of the right hemisphere. Having written about self-sufficiency as a defense against feeling alone and helpless, I now consider thes...

Harold searles: lifelong work of a master clinician.

HAROLD SEARLES: LIFELONG WORK OF A MASTER CLINICIAN. Am J Psychoanal. 2018 Jul 03;: Authors: Rivera FB Abstract Harold F. Searles was one of the most gifted and innovative clinicians of psychoanalysis. His clinical work arouses interest on its own merit, as well as for the ways in which it shaped his highly innovative thinking. We can only imagine what special processes were developing in Searles's inner world under the everlasting impact of his experience with psychotic patients and from his life in general. Searles focused extensively on how the psychotic individuals' mental distortions impacted their capacity to form personal relationships in general, and the role of the analyst and countertransference in treatment. This unique viewpoint helped him sustain a creativ...

Loneliness, closeness and shared responsibility in supervision.

LONELINESS, CLOSENESS AND SHARED RESPONSIBILITY IN SUPERVISION. Am J Psychoanal. 2018 Jun 28;: Authors: Yerushalmi H Abstract This paper examines the meaning of stepping in and out of the formal supervisory roles and allowing relational unbidden experiences in the supervisory space. Such episodes evolve the supervisory relationship because they help to relieve the supervisees of their sense of aloneness in bearing a burdensome clinical responsibility: they change the supervisees' perspective on therapeutic processes from first person singular to first person plural. Despite their evaluative function and the professional community that they share with supervisees, supervisors can facilitate the emergence of these episodes with the widely accepted practice of imagining t...
