You’ll recall from last week’s episode that Fern W Cohen, PhD, is a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist in private practice in New York City. Both of us have been fascinated by the fictional depiction of psychotherapy in HBO’s cable television series, “In Treatment.” Dr. Cohen graciously agreed to come back on to Shrink Rap Radio to discuss the series with me. Dr. Fern Cohen 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.
