GRADUATES OF THE MASTER’S PROGRAM

Christian Talbot

Mr. Talbot's first day of classes at New York Graduate School of Psychoanalysis (formerly the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis - New York) coincided with the attacks of September 11, 2001.  Though he had developed an interest in terrorism prior to his psychoanalytic training, his years at NYGSP allowed him to deepen his understanding of the psychodynamics of extremism.  After capping his Master's degree with an independent study under Dr. Stephen Soldz and a thesis on Osama bin Laden, Mr. Talbot completed the manuscript of a terrorism thriller, featuring a psychoanalyst as the protagonist.  Mr. Talbot also chairs the English Department at Regis High School on the Upper East Side.
