In today’s episode Fred Bush will speak about his new paper: Self-Criticism as a Lifeline.  Thanks to his clinical vignettes and to his sharp description of the mechanisms that rule the need for self criticism, he will lead us to discover a kind of patient that is different from the one that generally manifest a sense of guilt and melancholia. We’ll see that if they’re not experiencing criticism, these patients encounter the fear of a terrifying void. Because here self criticism is a way to hold on to the primary object. Fred Busch, Ph.D. is a Training and Supervising Analyst at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. Dr. Busch has published over 70 articles in the psychoanalytic literature, and four books, primarily on the method and theory of treatment. He has been on numerous editorial boards.
