Joan Lachkar, Ph.D. is a consultant to
entertainers and performing artists

Joan Lachkar, Ph.D. has treated and consulted with many professionals in the entertainment industry including musicians, actors, singers, screenwriters, and other virtuosos. Because of her training as a classical ballet dancer and performer herself, she has artistic ability to help performers express themselves to their utmost ability. Because of Joan Lachkar's in-depth knowledge of psychodynamics, she consults with screenwriters to ensure their material follows the logic of analytic thinking. For example, one would not use the word envy when they mean jealousy, as there is a distinct difference. The same holds true for shame and guilt. Many screenwriters today are very meticulous and take pride in the authenticity of their work (refer to Joan Lachkar's article "The Narcissist, the Artist").
