PEP-Web Tip of the Day

Pocket (formerly “Read-it-later”) is an excellent third-party plugin to browsers for saving bookmarks to PEP-Web pages, and categorizing them with tags.

To save a bookmark to a PEP-Web Article:

  • Use the plugin to “Save to Pocket”
  • The article referential information is stored in Pocket, but not the content. Basically, it is a Bookmark only system.
  • You can add tags to categorize the bookmark to the article or book section.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Psychoanalytic Review. XLII, 1955: The Holiday Syndrome. James P. Cattell. Pp. 39-43.

A variety of conflicts can be activated in the period from Thanksgiving to New Year. The season has many connotations of family closeness: ambivalence in the relation between father and son, holiday relaxation in the function of the superego, magical expectations from Santa Claus, and connotations of childbirth. Ferenczi noted that at the time of holidays the superego may exercise additional restraint as a reaction-formation against 'holiday wantonness'. The season has a sensitizing effect on those who have problems in accepting affection; the syndrome is an exaggeration of this pattern. The idea that one is a helpless, rejected child becomes dominant, with strong inclinations to invite further rejection. Because Sundays and holidays are times of special family closeness, they are likely to cause regressive behavior.
