I love my work. And, I love to write. If you visit my blog, Characters On The Couch, you’ll find my writings on film. You’ll also see how I think when I work, as I apply my psychoanalytic thoughts to the very real human struggles of your favorite film, TV, or book characters.
Each time I go to the movies (or watch a TV show or read a book), I can’t help but understand these characters in the same ways I understand my patients. This, I then bring to my writings on films. Since films depict real human problems with startling accuracy. Wonder why this is so?
Writers bring their own experiences to their fictional characters as they write. When we watch, these characters become even more convincing by what we bring from our past and our present.
Our unconscious minds unite with the writer’s. Personal experience is made public. We relate. We see. We know. The early memories and unconscious struggles of these characters show us what we can’t so easily know about other people or ourselves.
My writings on film at Characters on the Couch give me a chance to tell you what I see in ways similar to how I talk with my patients.
