In the June 2017 International Journal of Psychoanalysis, Phee Rosnick published an article entitled " 'Opening remarks at a practical seminary' by James Strachey." This previously unpublished manuscript, dating from 1941 by James Strachey was found in the Archives of the British Psychoanalytical Society. Strachey writes about technique, and returns to his earlier concerns about what makes an interpretation therapeutic. It was intended for first year candidates and is written in a relaxed, even humorous tone, deceptively simple, jargon free, but uncompromisingly precise as only Strachey can be. It is refreshingly modern in outlook and one has to work hard to remember that when this was delivered to candidates, London was in the midst of the Blitz and the British Psychoanalytical Society was on the verge of its own seismic upheaval.

Dear colleagues and friends,
I hope you can attend the panel I’ve put together at the APsaA winter meeting, Sunday February 16 from 9-12, “Motherhood: Risks and resilience under traumatic conditions”.
I’m very proud of and grateful of APsaA for making room for a topic that is of current importance: the world’s and our country’s refugee crisis and its devastating effects on children and their parents.
Three wonderful clinicians who have been working with refugees will present their work:
Dr. Susan Siegeltuch, LCSW, is a psychoanalyst in NYC. She has worked with Dr. Gilber Kliman and his pioneering project with immigrant families in detention and children separated from their parents here in the USA, will present his project and her case of a mother and her daughter in detention at the border.
Judy Roth, PhD, is a clinical psychologist/psychoanalyst in NYC, involved with accompaniment and witnessing projects that seek to support the efforts of those living and working in zones of ongoing political violence with the threat of expulsion. Dr. Roth is interested in the voice of the maternal in restorative justice efforts. She is the initiator of the Andreina Blua Award for frontline neighbors who step out of violence to aid those in flight. Her paper is entitled: Listening for maternal vision in the wake of political violence: A different lens for translation
Dr. Essam Daod, MD, is a maverick child psychiatrist from Israel. He is the co-founder of Humanity Crew; he has been a pioneer, doing extraordinary work with refugees in Greece and other places. He is now a WHO mental health expert consulting with many organizations all over the world. He will be sharing his experience and unique way of thinking on bringing essential mental health support to refugees in the frontline.
I look forward to seeing many of you there, learning from the experience of our presenting colleagues, and sharing our thoughts and insights in a rich discussion with them and each other.
