Max Cavitch, Ph.D.

This article, by a nonclinican, raises in a largely personal way questions about class and the pursuit of justice from a psychoanalytic perspective. It considers some of the channels that may have been opened—regardless of intent, or ideological leaning—by the interpersonal and relational schools and, more specifically, by Philip Bromberg's work on shame, dissociation, and self-states. The point here is not to fault Bromberg's psychoanalytic work for being insufficiently directed at social justice movements, but, rather, to make clear that the political project of psychoanalysis generally may find its more just future partly through unexpected channels of clinical thought and clinical practice.
