Practical Psychoanalysis: A Year in Review
When I first started this blog in February of last year, I wanted to write about psychoanalysis and make it accessible to a larger audience. I had the ambition to write about all things psychoanalytic, including “modern issues, culture, movies, people and common mental health issues affecting you and your family.” I committed to looking at “the way I experience it [psychoanalysis] in my daily life and clinical practice,” as well as to answering your questions about the way you have been touched by the clinical work.
Let’s look at the past (over a) year and see some of the main topics that we have covered so far:
- We talked about what PSYCHOANALYSIS is and tried to define it in:
- We talked a lot about the most common [psychoanalytic] symptoms, ANXIETY:
- We looked at the other most common [psychoanalytic] symptom, DEPRESSION:
- We reviewed some issues that occur in ADOLESCENCE:
- We discussed TRAUMA at length:
- We looked at some MOVIES in:
- And we also talked about RELATIONSHIPS:
So needless to say, we’ve covered a lot of ground. Yet, there is a lot left to cover. What I want to do is to ask a few other clinicians about their thoughts and experiences with psychoanalysis and hopefully, that will give us some direction about where to go next. We began this with our conversation with Dr. Bruce Fink about his new book and we’ll continue with a few of my colleagues that come with me to GIFRIC for an Annual Training in Lacanian Psychoanalysis in Quebec City, Canada.
In the meantime, if you would like to read about a specific psychoanalytic topic or you want to hear more about what we have already talked about, please write it in the comment section below.
Merci and au revoir!
