Alvin Burstein

I am a Professor Emeritus of Psychology and a psychoanalyst. Although I no longer see analysands, I am involved in a psychoanalytic study group that meets monthly. I am a member of a weekly  writers’ critique group, Inklings. I write a monthly movie review, A Shrink at the Flics, for Psychology Times, and serve as fiction editor for the quarterly, Silver Blade magazine. I am an unabashed francophile, and unrepentant cruciverbalist. You can see my curriculum vitae at
