F652 Summer 2018 A Psychoanalytic Perspective on the Origins of Violence and Gun Violence
Thursdays, 9:40–11:05, June 21–28
Two sessions
Instructor: Gary Parish
Class limit: 35

This course will look at the problems of violence and gun violence through the lens of the discipline of psychoanalysis. It focuses on aspects of childhood and child rearing that leave a disposition toward violence and gun violence in one form or another in later life. By identifying such factors, psychoanalysts can hope to eliminate or replace them with other child rearing techniques that avoid the tendencies toward violence and their behavioral consequences in adulthood.
Gary Parish is a retired CIA analyst with master’s degrees in electrical engineering and systems analysis, and a PhD in policy analysis from the RAND graduate Institute (now the Pardee RAND Graduate School).  He was trained in psychoanalysis by the late Dr. Nathan Leites of the RAND Corporation. He is writing a book documenting Dr. Leites' techniques and case studies entitled The Psychoanalytic Theory Of Decision.
