St. Louis Psychoanalytic Society

Review by:
Randall Riggs

A conference on “Memory, Suggestibility, and Seduction in the Clinical Psychotherapeutic Situation” was cosponsored by the St. Louis Psychoanalytic Society and the Department of Psychology at Washington University in fall 1998. Presenters included a psychologist-neuroscientist involved in neuroimaging, Moisy Shopper, Elizabeth Loftus, Henry Roediger, and others. They grappled with the clinical implications of modern research on human memory.

Seattle Psychoanalytic Society

Interest in the neurosciences runs high in Seattle, in good part as a result of the work of Carol A. Kusché and Werner H. Schimmelbusch. They have been pioneers in returning attention to the importance of the biological foundations of psychoanalysis.

Kusché recently remarked, “We should expect that successful psychoanalytic treatment actually influences and alters neurological organization and structuralization in the brains of our patients.” She developed the PATHS (for Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) Curriculum to teach “emotional literacy” to elementary schoolchildren. She described this work as follows: We used psychoanalytic, psychobiological, developmental, and other theories to form a powerful, integrated model for emotional and social education for children. We were then able to document its effectiveness.

Schimmelbusch's interest in neurobiology led to the implementation of a new elective class at the Seattle Institute that focuses on integrating psychoanalytic understanding with modern knowledge of brain functioning.
