Presenter: Richard Koenigsberg, Ph.D 

Richard Koenigsberg is an author, lecturer and teacher focusing on the roots of collective forms of violence. He received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the Graduate Faculty of the New School for Social Research and is a Faculty Member at the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis. New editions of his books—Hitler's Ideology: Embodied Metaphor, Fantasy and History, The Nation: A Study in Ideology and Fantasy and The Fantasy of Oneness and the Struggle to Separation: Towards a Psychology of Culture—recently have been released by Information Age Publishing. Dr. Koenigsberg seeks to uncover the ''hidden narratives'' that lie beneath the surface of culture and historical process. He has pioneered a method for studying the ideas of political leaders through analysis of images and metaphors contained within their rhetoric.


Program Objectives:

   Specifically; Participants will be able to:

1) Gain familiarity with a method that enables one to uncover hidden narratives contained within ideological texts.

2) Analyze the symbolic meaning of ideological concepts such as “the enemy” and “defending the nation.”

3) Understand how violence is conceived as righteous and necessary when undertaken in the name of a society’s sacred ideals.

4) Understand how psychology can expand its role as a discipline and theory by interpreting events occurring outside the clinical situation.   

Registration Fee: $125.

CE Credits:  Continuing Education Credits are available for psychologists and social workers from the Human Services Center of the Philadelphia Society of Clinical Psychologists. Add $20 to registration fee. LPC credits also available.
