Elizabeth Hegeman, Ph.D.

The life and work of Frieda Fromm-Reichmann raises some fascinating puzzles. How did she come from a traditional observant Orthodox Jewish home to become one of the earliest women to graduate from medical school? How did she become an innovative clinician with psychotic patients at a time when most psychiatrists (including Freud) were opposed to it? Why did someone who made her home in the inpatient setting of Chestnut Lodge come to write about loneliness toward the end of her life?  The answers lie in remarkable coincidences of history that shaped some of the earliest and most profound concepts of the Interpersonal perspective.

 


Elizabeth Hegeman, Ph.D. (Betsy) is a graduate of the WAW Institute and currently faculty, Training and Supervising Analyst. She is Professor Emerita at John Jay College of Criminal Justice where she taught anthropology and psychology for 50 years. She has written about cross-cultural issues, trauma and dissociation. With her husband Michael Stocker she co-authored "Valuing Emotions", Cambridge University Press.

VIEWS FROM THE PLAYSPACE LECTURE SERIES

 

This is an invitation to explore and consider the many ways of thinking about the treatment of children, adolescents and their families.  How do we understand the person before us?  What is helpful in the short-term?  What produces lasting and meaningful change?  We will consider developmental, neuroscientific, and psychoanalytic approaches to understanding the meaning of symptomatic behaviors.
