Ramon Greenberg, MD, talked to Howard Katz, MD, about his work on dreams and other contributions to psychoanalysis in an interview recorded for The Voice of Experience Series on October 9, 2020.
Ramon Greenberg, MD, is a Psychoanalyst and Faculty Member at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute (BPSI) and a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He is the author of numerous articles on the dream theory, sleep research, depression, schizophrenia, and clinical measurements in psychoanalysis. In 1966, Dr. Greenberg argued before the Court of Appeals that psychoanalytic training costs can be a tax deductible educational expense for psychiatrists and won, which led the IRS to approve this deduction for all therapists.
Howard M. Katz, MD, is on the faculties of the Harvard Medical School at McLean Hospital and BPSI, where he is a Training and Supervising Analyst. Dr. Katz’s most recent publications join his interest and research background in dreaming with a developing view of the neurobiological and developmental roots of athletic endeavors, broadly conceived, and their role in patterning of identity and relational constructs and in regulation of affect and self-esteem.
