“My parents had 3 children. My older brother became an artist. My younger brother became actor, director and theater producer. I became a psychologist. Maybe, that is why I am so invested in understanding psychology as an artistic creation. It is very important for me to build a creative, poetic and artistic psychology. My challenge is to use this art as a way for political and historical transformation.”
This is Murilo Moscheta speaking. He is a young Brazilian psychologist who I had the plasure of working with when he was a student in the Institute’s International Class last year. Murilo returned to Brazil and is currently seeking ways to construct a meaningful, developmental practice. The above excerpt is from a speech he gave to psychology students in Brazil this past summer. I recommend reading his talk, psychologist or artist, which speaks to psychologists-to be in any country.
