Death, Death objects, and Murderous Mourning in the Writings of Joshua Durban: Continuing our Analytic Encounter

A free lecture in preparation for the International Visiting Scholar weeklong visit by Joshua Durban, presented by Cheryl Jacques, PsyD

Tuesday Mar. 26, 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

flyerIn this seminar, we will take up the death object and the transformative process from murder to sorrow. We will consider Joshua Durban’s ethical devotion to his patients in the excess and overwhelmingness of their experience. In the paper “From the Scream to the Pieta,” we will discuss how Joshua Durban inhabits murderous mourning, its cost, and the realism of his analytic aim of “fighting the death object.” We will consider his concept of Dolor Perpetua. The paper will be distributed upon registration for the preseminar. We recommend a film, The White Ribbon, that illustrates the transmission of the death object in village children.

Readings will be provided upon registration
