This memoir describes the relationship between Richards’ personal life and professional life inside and outside of psychoanalysis. The influence of his Russian Jewish father, an early Bolshevik who emigrated to America in the 1920s, contributed to his efforts for fairness and inclusion in psychoanalytic training. His independent and original psychoanalytic writings span Contemporary Freudian Conflict Theory, more recent theoretical developments, analysis of psychoanalytic institutions and their histories, and the development of the thought collectives that make up psychoanalysis. His life and its events are a fascinating look at an analyst’s self-identity and prolific professional life.
Learning Objectives: After attending this presentation, participants will be able to
– Describe the development of a psychoanalyst, based on their life from childhood to adulthood, including their professional experiences, that may lead to certain theoretical leanings and activism within and outside the profession.
– Discuss how a psychoanalyst is able to challenge the status quo in a field.
– Identify what compels an author to write a memoir.

The Edith Laufer Neuropsychoanalytic Clinical Study Center provides emotional support in the next step of your recovery process after a brain injury.
Our licensed professionals treat the symptoms and psychological sequelae of stroke, TBIs, and other brain injuries. These symptoms may include depression, anxiety, identity issues and the feeling that you are just not your old self. After medical intervention and rehab, the next step is to address the psychological, social, familial and environmental challenges. When changes in the brain occur, these changes also affect how we feel about ourselves and how we relate to family and friends.
Our licensed clinicians are trained and highly experienced in this next step of the recovery process. The brain has an innate neuroplasticity and we are here to facilitate your recovery and to enhance your sense of well-being.
What We Offer
Brain-injured patients often experience symptoms of depression, anxiety and a sense that they are not the person they once were. Often they find that psychological services are not available to them after they complete their rehabilitation treatment.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy can help these individuals reduce their psychological symptoms and reestablish a sense of identity and well-being.
In the psychotherapeutic process, we work with you to facilitate your recovery and to reestablish a sense of self.
We are licensed clinical social workers, psychologists and psychoanalysts, collaborating with an educational consultant and a neurologist.
The Center’s licensed clinicians provide ongoing education, facilitate reading groups, give presentations at national and international conferences and contribute to scholarly journals.
