We congratulate Dr. Nate Koser on his invitation to become a member of the School of Psychoanalysis of the Lacanian Field. This is no small feat as the process of membership is rigorous requiring a review of clinical work and a lengthy interview process. Dr. Koser also participated and facilitated a seminar at the IXth Rendez-vous of the International of the Forums of the Lacanian Field and the Vth Meeting of the School of Psychoanalysis of the Forums of the Lacanian Field in Medellín, Colombia. (See picture). Congrats, Dr. Koser!

Retired prof Don Clymer blogs about social media, political irritation, and proclaiming the Kingdom of God, a timely read after and during the national conventions.

I often puzzle about shame and pride... and today this came across my path...still curious: "Just as there is healthy and unhealthy shame, so there is healthy and unhealthy pride. Pride in accomplishing good things together with others nourishes us and promotes social solidarity. Pride in being better than other people is divisive when it promotes sentiments of ‘I am better than you’. This is vaunting pride or narcissistic pride. Our research shows that unhealthy pride management is highly correlated with unhealthy shame management. Both explain high rates of bullying in schools among children and in workplaces among adults. Humble pride and reintegrative shame acknowledgement, in contrast, explain lower rates of bullying." http://johnbraithwaite.com/2016/05/18/new-research-on-shame-in-the-scientific-american/
