Rendering Unconscious episode 258.

Dr. Don Greif is a forensic psychologist and psychoanalyst practicing in New York City.

(Das) Unbehagen is a collective for those who love psychoanalysis, including clinicians, academics, artists and intellectuals. It is an association formed for the investigation of psychoanalysis free from the constraints of theoretical allegiance, institutes and other authorizing bodies, including local and national organizations. Unbehagen is dedicated to the creation of a space where members can learn to be practitioners of the unconscious. As a group of peers, we are creating a series of lateral relationships with those who likewise seek to revitalize psychoanalytic practice in an ethical manner. Through clinical study days, reading groups, peer supervision, and working groups investigating topics from support structures for those taking on analytic work independently, to the investigation of systematized violence in mental health services in America, to the possibility of forming a clinic to bring psychoanalysis to underserved populations, Unbehagen hopes to give new impetus to Freud’s discoveries.
