Book launch – Authenticity in the Analytic Encounter: The Work of Irma Brenman Pick

The launch of a collection of Irma Brenman Pick’s papers, Authenticity in the Analytic Encounter: The Work of Irma Brenman Pick (Routledge), filmed in March 2018 at London’s Freud Museum. Alessandra Lemma, editor of the New Library of Psychoanalysis, introduces speeches by psychoanalysts (and the book’s editors) Fakhry Davids and Naomi Shavit (both pictured), John Steiner, Donald Moss, and finally Brenman Pick herself.

Also included is an interview with co-editor Fakhry Davids. Davids talks in engaging detail about how the book came about, collaborating in the editing process with Naomi Shavit, and the rich development of Brenman Pick’s ideas over the course of her career.
