In the first semester of 2006 we have doubled our staff as well as the physical area of our headquarters. Six highly qualified new members with training in psychoanalysis, psychiatry, and neuropsychology have joined us, enriching our scientific potential. A communication department has been created. We have also hired a graphic designer to help with the organization of a basic electronic databank in neuroscience and psychoanalysis, allowing us to quickly prepare didactic material. As a result, an Introductory Course in Neuro-Psychoanalysis was structured, supported by digital presentations.
In June/July, following IPA's advice that psychoanalysts should seek affiliation with the university, a first Brazilian Postgraduate Course in Psychoanalysis[latu sensu] promoted by the Brazilian Psychoanalytic Society of Mato Grosso do Sul, in a partnership with the Catholic University Dom Bosco, was launched. Dr Soussumi and three of us have inaugurated the Course, with a 50-hour class schedule in neuropsychoanalysis. Our group is also attending the Mind-Body Study Group, a monthly meeting at the Brazilian Psychoanalytic Society of Sao Paulo.
In the social work area, we are presently developing a group of social educators to accomplish the second phase of the “Vi-rada” Project lead by RUKHA Institute. These educators will give direct guidance to family members of an initial group of 100 street children who were surveyed last semester, which comprises approximately 390 persons. Our network of partners is on its way, with the sharing of financial as well as educational, clinical, and technical resources.
We are negotiating a partnership with the Federal University of Sao Paulo in order to share technical and scientific resources.
Our experimental video game against violence has entered the production phase, with a planned milestone for December 2006 that will provide a demo sample to allow tests with experimental and control groups, monitored by one of our specialist neuropsychologists.
Around October, Dr Soussumi's book The Theory of the Basic Registers (provisional title) will be published. Finally our site's first version is on the net (www.rukha.org), with details of our work.
