Jews and Therapy in Films, Books and Television
CJST 253
Fall 2024
Section: 01  

Popular culture features many depictions of therapy. More often than not, these representations have some kind of Jewish relation: the creators of the media are Jewish, the therapist is Jewish, the patient(s) are Jewish, or all of the above. From Freud's iconic psychoanalytic couch to potato couches watching shows about his legacy, this course will examine the long-time connection between Jews and treatment. We will read books, watch romantic and horror films, binge on limited series, and ask: what can we learn from therapy about Jewish culture and history, and what can Jews teach us about therapy?
