Dealing with Identity: Transforming Apologies into Progress
Flora Lazar, PhD LCSW
Dr. Lazar reflects on the slow pace of change in psychoanalytic thinking and teaching about race and gender. She asks what it will take for psychoanalysis to become more inclusive of people whom it has historically dismissed and pathologized. One possibility, she suggests, lies in the integration of institute training with a university culture of research, critical inquiry and interdisciplinary dialogue.
