Donna Orange. 2016.

Julie Gerhardt, PhD, and Dennis Facchino, PhD, MFT

Friday Aug 23, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

SBCPS reading group logoJulie Gerhardt and Dennis Facchino would like to hold a discussion of Donna Orange’s profound and deeply disturbing book in which she brings together her depth of understanding of psychoanalysis, history, philosophy, politics and climate science to warn us of the immediate existential threat to life on earth. Linking the climate crisis to radical ethics by way of psychoanalysis, Donna Orange explores many relevant aspects of psychoanalytic expertise referring to work on trauma, mourning, shame and envy to understand our tendency to avoid the warnings in our time of crisis.
