Lee Scheier, Journalist and Lecturer, will speak on the topic, Freud, Mahler, Winnicott and Kohut: A Look at the Thoughts on Anxiety, Depression and Mental Illness by Top Thinkers in the Field of Psychoanalysis. Sigmund Freud founded modern psychology with his theories about the existence of a subconscious, trauma, repression and much more. In the 125 years since his groundbreaking ideas, many theoreticians have advanced and refined them. This talk will look at Margaret Mahler, Donald Winnicott and Heinz Kohut’s ideas which are among the most important, helping to create a modern psychotherapy that is in use today.
