PR Remarks

by Mark Smaller, Ph.D.

The work of the PR Committee continues with the invaluable contributions of Dottie Jeffries of Jeffries Marketing. Reporters from newspaper, T.V. and radio continue to contact us on a regular basis for stories. Recent activities have included Charles Jaffe on WBEZ, Mark Smaller on John Calloway’s Chicago Tonight on WTTW, and the Jenny Jones Show; letters to the Editor by Smaller, Bob Galazter-Levy, Neal Spira and Gordon Maguire have appeared in the New York Times, Tribune and Wall Street Journal.

Other activities include: Christine Kiefer, who recently joined the Committee and is pursuing contact with the Mental Health Association of Evanston, and with Adam Brent and the opening of his new bookstore on Michigan Ave.

Below is the Press release from the Library of Congress Announcing the Freud Exhibit which opens October 15th. Dottie Jeffries, representing our Institute and Society as well as the American Psychoanalytic Association, has been hard at work nationally and locally to make important PR use of this historic event. I hope you all can see the exhibit.

I want to thank members of my Committee for their contributions: Paula Fuqua, Bob Fajardo, Christine Kiefer, Len Adams and Dottie Jeffries. Please get in touch with me if you’re interested in joining the PR Committee.
