Video: Andrew Solomon at the 2014 Erikson Institute Media Colloquy

Andrew Solomon, recipient of the 2014 Erikson Institute Prize for Excellence in Mental Health Coverage by the Media, speaks at the Institute’s annual Media Colloquy about his books The Noonday Demon and Far From the Tree, using the word “resilience” to describe the unifying theme of his work. He explores the notion of building and constructing meaning as both central to dealing with depression and also to resolving seemingly vast differences between some parents and their children. The Austen Riggs Center’s Erikson Institute seeks to promote education and research in psychodynamic thought and treatment, by working to generate new knowledge in partnership with a range of disciplines.
