Ellen Handler Spitz, Honors College, to Lead Conference

On Saturday, April 9, Ellen Handler Spitz, Honors College professor of visual arts, will lead a conference at APS, a local chapter of the Division of Psychoanalysis of the American Psychological Association, entitled “Art on the Mind: Creativity, Trauma, and the Psychoanalytic Endeavor.”

At the conference, Spitz will share her reflections on the intricate links that art forges between our internal experience and external realities. The goals of the conference are to help attendees discern some of the means by which art exposes hidden inner wishes and fears, better understand how to psychologically interpret visual Imagery and reflect more meaningfully on the healing power of the arts.
