CHARACTERS ON THE COUCH IS BACK!

Welcome, readers. Characters On the Couch and my blogging on film is back with Three Identical Strangers and a subject I’m passionate about: the lasting effects of separation trauma.

I took an almost four-month hiatus to build out my new office at 435 N. Bedford Drive, Suite 406, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 – a lovely and peaceful new space for my much loved clinical work and writing.

That wasn’t the only thing, though. Along with the demands of the office build out, I also needed time to write a chapter on Pedro Almodovar’s film, Broken Embraces, for an exciting new book. Pedro Almodovar: A Cinema of Passion and Desire, co-edited by Arlene Kramer Richards and Lucille Spira will be published by IP Books in 2019.

Today, my re-launch piece is on separation trauma. With Trump’s cruel immigration policy of separating children from their parents at the border (some threatened not to have the right of re-unification), Three Identical Strangers is more than timely.

Please read and COMMENT. Having a dialogue with you is something I’m always interested in. Tell me your thoughts and I’ll gladly respond.
