Welcome to segment #11 of Hebrew University Speaks, CFHU’s monthly video series featuring thought-provoking, informative and entertaining presentations by HU faculty and students.

Our previous instalment featured Dr. Renana Keydar as she explained her vision for digital humanities: Bringing Justice to Victims of Mass Atrocities.

This month, we present a TEDx Talk with professor of psychoanalysis Dr. Nathan Szajnberg, who shares his fascinating and important work in the realm of children’s inner lives, sparking a “new hope and responsibility for all.”

In this time of COVID-19, where our children are experiencing stresses that they have never experienced before, understanding their inner lives is more important than ever.
