Psychoanalytic education at Second Story arises in response to a widely expressed sentiment that institutional psychoanalysis fails to foster creative exchange and dialogue---particularly when outside the narrow channels designated for study.
suspicious books is a new publishing venture that will debut in 2014. It aims to be a forum where something unexpected happens, which invites play and discomfort, discussion, and critical inquiry.
Second Story houses a wide-range of cultural events, including a writer's group, a series of concerts, clinical workshops, academic talks and more. Past events have included workshops with Dr. Michael Feldman and Dr. Richard Rusbridger, a conversation with Dr. Marilia Aisenstein, presentations by Dr. Dori Laub and Johanna Bodenstad, and a dialogue between Professor Gayle Salamon and Dr. Avgi Saketopoulo.
