Frank Lachmann has been a major contributor to Contemporary Psychoanalysis and Self Psychology. In their joint work, Frank Lachmann and Beatrice Beebe enriched psychoanalysis by providing life-long principles of the organization of experience, derived from empirical infant studies, offering new ways of understanding and transforming the analyst-patient relationship. Dr. Lachmann has drawn on his love of music to uniquely inform the analytic process. Utilizing master classes taught by Isaac Stern, and the music of Wagner and Stravinsky, he discovered illustrations of cross-modal transfer and violations of expectations. As a writer, scholar, teacher, and supervisor, Frank Lachmann has continued to surpass our expectations with humor, complexity, a depth of tradition, and breadth of innovation.

Lachmann has authored over 100 publications and books written individually and collaboratively with Beatrice Beebe, Jim Fosshage, Joe Lichtenberg and Bob Stolorow. He is the author of Transforming Aggression: Psychotherapy with the Difficult-to-Treat Patient and Transforming Narcissism: Reflections on Empathy, Humor, and Expectations.

Dr. Lachmann will present two papers: "Chills, Thrills, Goosebumps and Therapeutic Action," a multi-media presentation on affective communication, and an autobiographical account, "How I Became Me."

Is War Inevitable? An Interdisciplinary Conference

Saturday February 25, 2012
Katie Murphy Amphitheatre of the Fashion Institute of Technology
7th Avenue at West 27th Street, Entrance D
New York City, NY

Psychology Making a Difference in Society Series

About the Conference: The theme of this conference is inspired by a correspondence between Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud.  In 1932 Einstein wrote to Freud and posed the question, Is war inevitable? (or more precisely "Is there any way of delivering mankind from the menace of war?"). Freud's response to Einstein was published under the title, "Why War?"  His answer was consistent with what was known at that time about human motivation and aggression. Our examination of this topic continues to be as vital to address today as it was then.  Einstein's choice to invite Freud to think about war reflects the underlying hope and potential of psychology to offer ways to improve society.  With that spirit in mind, this one-day conference will explore contemporary psychoanalytic and social psychological ideas about the problem of war.  What have we learned in the last 80 years, since the Einstein/Freud correspondence, that we can, and must, highlight as advancement in our knowledge about "Why War?" This conference brings together a diverse group of thinkers that include leading researchers, clinicians, theorists, and a journalist to offer a contemporary perspective on this most enduring problem in society.  Speakers: Parens, Solomon, Buechler, Botticelli, Moss, Grand, Hogg, Aviram, Cambanis.
