Film Discussion:  Whiplash:  Men Behaving Badly

Friday, May 25th, 2018 | 7:00 to 8:30 PM



This “small” low budget film, directed by Damien Chazelle, focuses on just two characters and the development of their relationship became a big film: it was nominated for five academy awards, winning in two categories, best supporting actor for J.K. Simmons and best sound production.   And it has generated a great deal of discussion in the critical world.


Ron Goldman, EdD has been conducting discussions about Psychology and Film for many years within the context of the Psychology Goes to the Movies series, which he coordinated.  He has a private practice in Brookline and is certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy– an approach to couples therapy built around John Bowlby’s attachment theory and developed by Sue Johnson.

  1. Discuss the roots of men’s fear and hatred of women.
