What does Psychiatry share with Poetry? Both involve exploring underlying meaning to understand oneself better.

The Emory Psychoanalytic Society is presenting a series on “Psychiatry and the Humanities,” and the first event is this evening. Andrew Furman, professor of psychiatry, will join another Emory professor and poet Jericho Brown.
