Shelley Feinerman THE SULLIVANS: THROUGH A BLUE WINDOW (2020, 90 minutes, digital)
In the 1970’s, on Manhattan’s upper west side, there existed a pyscho-sexual therapy group known as the SULLIVANIANS. Saul B. Newton founded the Sullivan Institute in 1957 with his wife, Dr. Jane Pearce based on the basterized theories of Harry Stack Sullivan. ….with the plan of creating a viable alternative to the traditional nuclear family, which they viewed as the root of all social anxiety. Unlike other practicing therapists who worked under a strict code of ethics, there were no such boundaries for the Sullivanians or “the group,” as the members of the Institute and their therapists were known. Characterized as a cult, the Sullivanian Institute advocated sexual relationships between licensed psychologists and their patients.
