In Celebration of Idea – and Narrative

This September I had a unique opportunity to join people together from the intersection of the fields of my life’s work: business / leadership and psychology / psychoanalysis.

A few longtime friends and mentors in the field of psychoanalysis, Dr. Joe Lichtenberg (along with Mady Chalk), as well as Dr. Curtis Bristol and his wife Marie Drissel, all came to Detroit to spend time with me and my wife Carol, to walk the grounds of our home, to visit the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Detroit Athletic Club downtown, and to celebrate “idea”. We were also pleased to be joined by a bright young leader in the education industry, Dr. Shawn Mahoney, one of my leadership mentees.

In addition to the wonderful conversation and amazing food and drink, we had the opportunity to discuss several upcoming publications, news of which I want to share here.

Joe Caruso Supports Campaign for Cancer Awareness

A cancer survivor at a young age, Joe Caruso kicks off his participation in It’s In Your Jeans, a fundraising and awareness campaign that is…

committed to joining the fight against colorectal, prostate, and testicular cancers. Our mission is to educate men to take responsibility for their health and when to take action. Our goal is educate, promote awareness and to offer financial assistance toward the preventative treatment against, prostate, testicular, and colorectal cancer to the men in our community.

While cancer was the last thing on his mind as an 18-year old diagnosed in 1978, young men and men of all ages can greatly benefit from increased awareness and education to allow for early detection and prevention right now, in 2016.

8 Reasons Why Joe is Participating – Did You Know?

  1. Cancer is the second largest cause of death among males with prostate cancer being the first common form and colorectal cancer being the third most common.
  2. When it comes to routine doctors visits, men lag far behind women according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
  3. Michigan ranks eighth in the United States for the number of new cancer cases in 2015 – that’s 57,420 new cases last year. Of those, 12,300(21.4%) are prostate or colorectal cases. These cancers account for 2,480 deaths(11.9% of all cancer related deaths in Michigan in 2015).
  4. Due, in part, by the early diagnosis of certain cancers, the five year survival rate for all cancers was 68% (up from 49% in 1975).
  5. In 2012, 46.9% of Michigan men 50 years and older had a Prostate Specific Antigen(PSA) test in the past year according to MDHHS.
  6. There is a lack of urgency for preventative testing in our community.
  7. Having a family history of prostate cancer increases the risk for developing it.
  8. In 2012, an estimated 233,602 men were living with testicular cancer in the United States according to the National Cancer Institute.

The Reality TV Primaries

If you can get yourself to read past the third sentence of this article you may just learn how this year’s primary election is less about politics, or political solutions to America’s problems, and more about the confluence of three things: technology, the power of narrative, and the collective conscious of America.

Try to get through the next sentence knowing it is neither an endorsement for, nor an indictment of, a Presidential Primary candidate.

Politics aside, Donald Trump is the best-qualified candidate to win the Presidential Primaries.

Marking the Life of A Master: Martin Bergmann

Reaching the age of 100 is a remarkable achievement for any human. No matter how many years I have left, I hope to demonstrate the same love and commitment to my craft that I had the privilege of experiencing in a truly remarkable man, Martin Bergmann. The world lost a great mind when Martin died on January 22, 2014, less than a month shy of his 101st birthday. Martin Bergmann was a psychoanalyst, an author and an educator. If you’ve seen Woody Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanors, then you’ve seen him in action (more about that later).

Everyone in life can be our teacher, but not everyone is a master. A master is someone whose life embodies whatever it is you seek.” — Joe Caruso, The Power of Losing Control (Chapter 9)

Martin was a man I highly respected for his work in psychoanalysis. Thanks to my good friends Dr. Curtis Bristol and Dr. Todd Davison, I was blessed to know Martin Bergmann personally. By studying his writing and through our personal meetings and discussions, I made him my master.  A great man.  A great analyst. A unique mind.
