  • The Psyche: A Look at the Work of Karen Horney
    Wed, Mar 10, 2021
    6:30pm-7:30pm
    Our exploration of the psyche will begin and focus on the life and works of Karen Horney. Karen is often referred to as a Neo-Freudian psychoanalyst, due primarily to her extension of Sigmund Freud’s theories into the realm of social and cultural phenomena. Horney, however, did offer a strong rebuttal to Freud’s idea of penis envy, setting the platform for the establishment of feminist psychology. Horney’s work looked closely at ten neurotic needs everyone has. During this event we look at these neurotic needs and how they may manifest themselves. Presentation by Orin James.
