EAST BAY BOOKSELLERS is pleased to host another installment of Freud's Bar on Wednesday, March 14th at 6:30pm. The theme of their upcoming segments this Fall and Winter is Tickling the Unconscious. The topic of this meeting will be "'Why Are We Laughing?!': Jokes, the Freudian Unconscious, and Political Humor." The evening's featured presenter is Diana Fuery, LCSW, PhD.

Are you interested in the world of psychology but afraid you may not understand all of the terms and jargon? Join us for monthly talks given by local Bay Area psychoanalysts. You don't need to be a psychologist to check out Freud's Bar. Just bring your interest and a friend!

Freud wrote about humor and joke telling. Why do we laugh? What makes a good joke? What does this tell us about our unconscious selves? During this evening, we will tell jokes, discuss Freud’s understanding of what makes a good joke, and appreciate the relief in the political humor of the day. Bring your favorite jokes.


Diana Fuery, LCSW, PhD, is a psychoanalyst in private practice in Berkeley. She has taught a variety of courses in graduate programs on both coasts, and is on faculty at SFCP. Her practice consists of individuals of all ages, as well as couples and family work. Laughing is both a hobby and a passion!
