Film Series:  Mind Games


Silence of the Lambs

Friday April 15, 2016     7:00-9:00 PM

Silence of the Lambs is only the third film to win Academy Awards in all the top five categories: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Adapted Screenplay.  What is it about this film that succeeds on so many levels—most notably as a horror/crime film on the one hand- and as a brilliant psychological study on the other?  We will explore both the manifest and latent dimensions of the film to help answer that question.


Ron Goldman, Ed.D has been conducting discussions about Psychology and Film for many years within the context of the Psychology Goes to the Movies series, which he coordinated.  He has a private practice in Brookline and is certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy-- an approach to couples therapy built around John Bowlby’s attachment theory and developed by Sue Johnson.



This workshop is designed to help the participants to:

  1. Discuss some aspects of how change occurs in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
  2. Analyze the nature of transference and its role in therapy.
  3. Describe how childhood trauma manifests itself in adulthood.
