    Parasitic Whiteness targets non-white people for domination. It proceeds under the auspices of entitled dominion. It works by creating a fictive community, each of whom feels protected from their individual frailties by participating in this group imagined to be strong. The premise boomerangs. Domination enfeebles the dominator while subjugating the target. All lose. We will make this via personal, clinical and theoretical considerations. We will then take up similar issues while consulting with a local analytic clinician regarding a current case in which race and racism play noticeable parts.

    The presentation will be divided into two parts: in the morning we will present Moss’ work on parasitic Whiteness– theoretical and clinical. In the afternoon, we will have a clinical discussion of current process material presented by Asli Baykal, PhD, LCSW, a local analytic clinician.


    Donald Moss, M.D.— Program Chair of APsaA, Author of 5 books and 60+ articles, with a primary focus on problems of masculinity and structured forms of hatred– racism, homophobia, misogyny. Founding member of Green Gang, a group of analysts and scientists focusing on climate change denial.

    Lynne Zeavin, Psy.D.: Dr Lynne Zeavin is a training and supervising analyst at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute where she co-chairs the Diversity Committee and teaches the work of Melanie Klein. An associate editor at JAPA and on the editorial boards of The Psychoanalytic Quarterly and Division/Review, Dr Zeavin writes about gender, sexuality, misogyny and Race, as well as various aspects of Kleinian theory and technique. Along with several colleagues she is a co-founder of the Rita Frankiel Memorial Fellowship sponsored by the Melanie Klein Trust which has offered a subspecialty training in Kleinian analysis for advanced candidates over the last decade. Dr. Zeavin is a member of the program committee of Apsa and a founder of Green Gang, a 4 person psychoanalytic collective engaged in the study of our human relationship with the natural world.

    Asli Baykal (PhD, LCSW) is a psychotherapist in private practice in Austin, TX. She obtained her MA in Gender Studies at Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey, and her PhD in anthropology at Boston University, after which she served as professor of cultural anthropology at University of Richmond.

    Richard Arthur Wyrick, 76, died peacefully the evening of his birthday, May 21, 2020, at his home in San Antonio, Texas. Present at his death was his ex-wife, Beverly Davis.

    Richard was born on May 21, 1944, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He was the second child of Mary Thomasine (Keene) Wyrick and Arthur Moore Wyrick. His parents’ hometown was Sherman, Texas, but the family moved numerous times across the United States, as Richard’s father managed numerous retail stores in New Mexico, Ohio, Idaho, Washington and Oregon, before returning home to Sherman to retire.

    Richard graduated from high school in Portland, Oregon. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the honors college of the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon and a master’s degree and doctoral degree in clinical psychology from the University of Arizona in Tucson in 1972.

    After working as an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, Richard took a position as a staff psychologist at the Audie L. Murphy Memorial Veterans Hospital in San Antonio, Texas.  He made San Antonio his home and retired in 2017 after 39 years of service to veterans at the VA hospital.

    Richard was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Patricia Pappenhagen.  He is survived by a son, David Wyrick, and daughter, Charlotte Wyrick, as well as his nephew, Ronald Pappenhagen, and nieces, Laura Pappenhagen Lazzerini, and Karen Beth Pappenhagen.

    Richard was a skilled clinician and teacher, widely respected by staff, colleagues and patients for his insights and dedication to his work and the profession of clinical psychology. He was one of the original members of the San Antonio Society for Psychoanalytic Studies and a longtime regular participant in the monthly reading group. He contributed to the reading group’s discussions with wit, warmth, originality and compassion.  He is remembered fondly, with great affection and respect, by many former patients, colleagues and friends.
