NYSPA’S Division of Psychoanalysis invites you to join us for our 4th in a series of wonderful Sunday Evening Supper Soirees featuring leading contemporary psychoanalysts. 

Psychologist Psychoanalyst, Dr. Sophia Richman will discuss some of the ideas featured in her new book – Mended by the Muse: Creative Transformation of Trauma (Routledge, 2014). Drawing on the artistic productions of trauma survivors and using her personal history as a Holocaust survivor, she will illustrate the healing power of the creative process. By highlighting the complexity and diversity of responses to catastrophic events, she will challenge stereotyped views of survivors based on experience-distant theoretical constructions perpetuated in the trauma literature.

Sophia Richman, PhD, ABPP, is a psychologist and psychoanalyst who holds a Diplomate in Psychoanalysis from the American Board of Professional Psychology. In addition to her private practice, Dr. Richman is a Supervisor at the New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, a Training and Supervising Analyst at the Center for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis of New Jersey, and a faculty member of the Stephen A. Mitchell Center for Relational Studies. In 2002, she authored the award winning A Wolf in the Attic: The Legacy of a Hidden Child of the Holocaust (Routledge). Her most recent book is Mended by the Muse: Creative Transformations of Trauma (Routledge, 2014). Dr. Richman is also a painter.
