    The purpose of the film series is to encourage psychoanalytic dialogue with respect to creativity and movies. 

    During World War I, commanding officer General Broulard (Adolphe Menjou) orders his subordinate, General Mireau (George Macready), to attack a German trench position, offering a promotion as an incentive. Though the mission is foolhardy to the point of suicide, Mireau commands his own subordinate, Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas), to plan the attack. When it ends in disaster, General Mireau demands the court-martial of three random soldiers in order to save face.

    Healing Through the Displacement of the Play in Child Analysis with Rick Hall, Ph.D.

    The case of 8 year-old Peter will be presented to illustrate how an equivalent of parental loss through disability contributed to Peter’s depression, anxiety and narcissistic defenses. Illustrations will be given to show how vulnerability to narcissistic injury Peter was and how the resulting narcissistic defenses interfered with his education.

    Case material will be provided to show how Peter used the displacement of play with Lego blocks and Lego mini-figures to express how much of a bad guy he thought he was. His multiple transferences to his analyst were also expressed in the displacement of the Lego play. He thought he was the worst of bad guys. Before treatment, he seemed to be on the way to living down to that image of himself.  Through the displacement of play in intensive psychoanalytic treatment, Peter expressed wishes he could heal his father and worked through his wishes, fears and beliefs about himself to the point where his self-image shifted to one that is more reasonable. Peter was eventually able to state that he realizes he is not such a bad guy and that the whole world is not against him.

    Based on his a true story, THE RIDER stars breakout Brady Jandreau as a once rising star of the rodeo circuit warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for new identity and tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.

    “We do not talk of such things”. An Analyst Travels Through Japan to Consult on the Inter-generational Transmission of Trauma and Learns to Use Her Countertransference to Facilitate Helping a Population with Hidden Traumas.



    Certificates of attendance only.  No CME credits are provided.


    Mary Ann Chudy Levy, M.D., Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado School of Medicine is now retired from her clinical practice of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy of child, adolescent, and adult patients, but remains active in professional and educational activities. She is a training and supervising analyst with the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis and was the first woman to graduate from their program. She has enjoyed her many years as a teacher and supervisor of psychoanalytic candidates as well as psychiatric residents and other clinical specialists. As a past president of the Denver Psychoanalytic Society, she helped facilitate its response to the Columbine shooting disaster where the society members became involved in many aspects of out-reach and clinical support for survivors of that terrible community disaster. She has always been surprised by how much early childhood traumas have contributed to her work with patients and how little acknowledgement of this has been stressed in psychoanalytic training until recently. Scholarly interests have included femininity in psychoanalytic work, and countertransference as well as the treatment and long term effects of traumatic stress.

    Dr. Levy was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and received her MD in 1964 from the University of Manitoba. She subsequently completed her psychiatric residencies in Adult and Child Psychiatry at the University of Cincinnati, followed by her Psychoanalytic training at the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis.
