DESCRIPTION:
“Post-Freudian Slips: How contemporary psychoanalytic thought can deepen the inner lives of your characters” by Christopher Feliciano Arnold 

This craft talk will introduce students to a basic overview of contemporary psychoanalytic thought that can help them instill characters with a deeper level of psychological realism. Building upon the pioneering ideas of Sigmund and Anna Freud, we will explore how the Post-Freudian thinkers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century can help writers render splintered selves, fluid identities, formative relationships, traumas, ecstasies and critical experiences like birth, sex, violence, parenthood and death.

Chris Feliciano Arnold is the author of The Third Bank of the River: Power and Survival in the Twenty-First Century Amazon. He has written essays and journalism for The Atlantic, Harper’s, Outside, Vice News, The New York Times and more.
