#144 – Psychoanalysis From Both Sides of The Couch



Fern W. Cohen, PhD, a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist in private practice in New York City, has long been committed to conveying in everyday language what the psychoanalytic process is about and how it works. She is the author of the 2007 book, From Both Sides of The Couch: Reflections of A Psychoanalyst, Daughter, Tennis Player, and Other Selves… A graduate of Radcliffe College, Dr. Cohen earned her Ph.D. in School Psychology from New York University and completed her analytic training at the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis as well as the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR) of which she is a member. When she is not playing tennis, hanging out with her grandchildren or mastering music for two pianos, she is practicing psychoanalysis in New York City.

    As far as I am concerned this was by far the most interesting of shows to date. I have had a few people who have told me that I should be a psychodynamic therapist. An observation I have wondered about but now have a clearer understanding of since listening to this outstanding interview and presentation of what analysis is all about. There are a couple of problems though, one is that the show ended just when it was really getting down to the nitty gritty. Two that one more podcast isn’t going to be enough. In broadcasting these are two great problems to have. I will be waiting eagerly for the next session with Dr. Cohen and hoping that there might be an interview 3,4,5… I have a feel that Dr. Dave that your show is doing a lot of good. I also have a name for your fans, Dave-Votee’s LOL
