Impulse Newsletter Committee
Matthew Morrissey, MFT
NCSPP's html newsletter Impulse brings our local psychoanalytic scene to over 1800 subscribers' inboxes on the first of every month. Impulse runs different features in order to capture a wide variety of content. Appointment Book, the centerpiece of the newsletter, allows readers to peruse all the psychoanalytic events happening for that month.
The two income-generating features, Piece of Mind and Event Spotlight, continue to be edited by longtime committee member Meg Earls. Piece of Mind provides psychoanalytic organizations and programs a space to introduce (or reintroduce) themselves and to familiarize readers with their missions. Event Spotlight lets organizations highlight an upcoming event in depth.
The feature Potential Space, with Adam Blum as editor, showcases articles from our staff writers. This past year, Adam contributed an article of his own on Marion Milner's 1960 paper “The Concentration of the Body.” Staff writer Mark McKinley interviewed Bryant Welch on the state of psychoanalysis, explored the ontological aspects of psychotherapy, and wrote on the importance of shame. Writer Jane Reingold mused on the psychoanalytic dimensions of two films: Pina, a Wim Wenders documentary, and Lars Von Trier's Melancholia. Lorrie Goldin reported on the Community Institute for Psychotherapy's workshop on integrating psychotherapy with progressive politics and explained how the psychology of hostile dependency plays out at the polls. Suzanne Stambaugh joined the committee last November as staff writer. In her contributions thus far she has elucidated the psychodynamics of the holiday season and described the various dimensions of loss in translation.
The feature Psychoanalysis in the News — edited by Ripple Patel, our newest committee member — compiles the month's most intriguing headlines. Readers also stay connected to NCSPP through the quarterly published President's Remarks and NCSPP's Corner. With so many features, Impulse needs a separate person just to keep everything on track. This would be Shlomit Gorin, our managing editor. (Shlomit also contributed a piece of her own writing this past year, focusing on what Fyodor Sologub's The Petty Demon teaches us about paranoia, sadism, and splitting.)
