The Freud Café
A FREE event open to the general public about psychoanalysis in the wider culture - from fashion to film, politics to sports and more...
Wednesday, April 15, 2020, 7:30 - 9:30 p.m.
Topic: The Psychoanalytic Couch: Fantasy vs. Reality
New Yorker cartoons, Woody Allen, Madmen - popular culture loves the Couch. We put the couch on the couch to explore why Freud first used it (it's not what you think!), how the design has changed over the past century, and why some analysts think the couch...should be put to bed.
