    Clearly detailed and uncomplicated,though my faculty excellently teaches this course but this E-lecture is much more helpful to get the big picture ❤
    We are given a handout of Anna O's case study,reading is indeed helpful but watching and hearing adds life to learning.

    Thank you Berlin Psychoanalytic for producing and publishing these presentations. The unconscious aspects of ourselves do have strong influences on our behaviours and Terror Management Theory has shown how we can be subliminally influenced. It would be interesting if your organisation could explain and explore aspects of Terror Management Theory.

    A Must WATCH
    Am I strange or weird but this video really ........ Excites me !
    Brilliant absolutely wonder full , as if someone had explained quantum mechanics for layt people cannot praise this video enough a true gem
    Why it makes an incredibly complex ideation behind psychoanalysis available for all people willing to use their intellects .
    Absolutely clear a revelatory podcast video.
    Thank you at 60 having to go back to the beginning in the NHS mental health care system I am utterly dismayed at the lack of insight , knowledge and understanding about the possible aetiology of mental health.
    As if there is still this "us" and "them", yet "patients " are in the special position to be able to acknowledge they need and thus receive help those who purport to help them are not , the blind leading the blind, INSIGHT , real self-knowledge being paramount or how do we or even can we access hidden repressing elements in our own psyche and correct distortions ?
    I am often ignored because if question this dichotomy .The "us" and "them", the (neurotically) normal and the mad ( or mentally ill) or just more obviously disturbed .
    So....Thank you and to C Justav a real pioneer can we say then that the movement towards self realization to bring theses various partial or even totally subconscious elements and aspects of our conscious mind to the surface again i.e. to deconstruct and or by pass the conscious mind's defences and to unravel its mechanisms such that there is no longer a need to be so defensive and eventually even to explore this element or aspect of our consciousness , we become more of what we can be unafraid and willing and able to engage in each and every encounter life brings especially with regard to our relating to others .
    Missed bits at 27 mins and will go back everyone who thinks they can help others should really struggle t understand this , but need not totally agree , i.e. is self transcendence more important to health than self actualization ? This might account for the temporary need for defence mechanisms ?.
    If you allow me God Bless ...Will recommend this later

    Excellent lecture.
    Some new interesting insights.
    Can a mental disorder, give a person extra sensory perception?
    Can a mental disorder , give rise to unconscious augmentation , that result in superhuman perception/awareness?
    Can a mental disorder surface unconscious skills?
    Can a person deliberately push himself into the unconscious realm, to evoke superhuman perception?

      @Art History TV | Original Art Documentary Series can a person hallucinate the future/ an event in the future?
      Can a person hallucinate a place memory, recalling events that happened in that place in the past?
      Can a person hallucinate that shadows have colours?

    Awesome lecture.
    I realise that someone tried to do psychoanalysis on me.
    I understan how effective a tool, psychoanalysis can be.
    I am not sure i fully understand yet the details of the mechanism/method.
    Why the petiant understanding of past event memory/cause/conflict can actually relief a present resulting condition?
    Maybe reliving/processing the past event, with support, creates a substitusional mitigating feelings memory associations?

      People tend to repress, hide, or lie to themselves about past memories. Often these memories are sad, therefore, they can be forgotten, and instead, they will create or remember only the happy memories. If something bad or tragic is repressed/forgotten, the real or actual event is still stored in our brain, or/and body. Symptoms can appear, seemingly out of nowhere. Yet, on a subconscious level, we never forget. This phenomenon is called Cognitive Dissonance. Something is out of balance and is calling for repair.

    The next day! I do apologize for venting long held, unresolved emotions!
    Please forgive me. I can only add my outrageous outburst to Grist for the Mill. Why did I feel such an explanation, from me, necessary? I'm working on understanding this! Thank you for allowing me self expression. Peace is always the goal.
    Now that I understand, so very recently, all dream symbols of the 45 year old dream I experienced in the first analysis, I am reexamining that Transference. With new information, it has taken a different shape!

    Interesting and helpful but in my opinion the attempt to treat psychoanalysis as similar to modern science risks distorting (and even trivialising) it. The unconscious was not something that Freud or anyone else "discovered" and whose existence we have to provide proofs of. Rather it is a powerful picture that offers us a new way of relating to ourselves.. The picture brings together a wide range of phenomena that look inexplicable in the absence of the picture and provides the basis for a way of treating people who have mental difficulties that is very different from other approaches and can deliver a different type of success.

      I completely agree. Analysis is the method of choice for those desiring truth. Everyone knows that truth is not desired by all;
      and, as you imply, our unconscious minds hold the keys to truth.


    Fantastic video ¡

    For the record, I can't blame SAIS for going rogue. And perhaps there will be a Silver Lining for everyone involved. Freud does not deserve being tossed into the Dust Bin!

    Chemical lobotomy is real today in Finland. First it's the 'medicine' (a brain-damaging chemical with noticeable and common side-effects), you take that for god knows how long until you luck out perhaps and get a real professional to take care of you. And you do need to do the work yourself too, to get well (as if there was something unnatural happening in you, there's not). One major turning point for me was to stop vilifying my psychosis.

      I can only read between the lines of you comments. Are you saying that YOU have been a recipient of "Modern Day Lobotomy?
      I am so sorry! Horrified, actually. Of course there are no online or You Tube discussions of present day techniques. Hopefully this procedure will improve the quality of your life, and others, too. Thank you for sharing. Incidentally, there are many individuals around in our world who are dealing with a psychosis; I've encountered a few, join the club. And may you get better.

    "Whatever is most important will come from a patient."
    Is this the reason the the Seattle (ROGUE) Psychoanalytic Institute/ Society used me (without my consent) as an experimental psychoanalytic analysand via KZclip? Sure, allow a tragically, psychotic (not completely insane) "psychoanalyst" they trained and authorized to proceed, so he could actualize his fantasy of becoming the next Freud . Apparently this Seattle Society thought, "Go for it! We have nothing to lose, Psychoanalysis is no longer effective, and we can no longer attract future students to our Training Institute, so anything that will bring new treatments to life will be a good thing, regardless of trauma an Experimental Analysand endures; it is the right thing to do, in the interest of SCIENCE. This began just before 911.
    I completed my SELF ANALYSIS, just last week. As an aside, 45 years ago, I had a mysterious dream that I reported to my analyst in training at the Colorado Psychoanalytic Institute. I was in my mid 20's, then. Freudian Theory was invaluable to me, since reading at age 17, Freud's Interpretation of Dreams. I did not understand one word, yet I knew that I needed to understand these theories. How insightful of me! It took a nervous breakdown, the manipulated theft of my expensive waterfront home, foreclosed because of the resulting breakdown experienced from the Transference neurosis to the Psychotic Psychiatrist (who never completed his personal Analysis!) Why can these Board uncertified Doctors practice Psychoanalysis without completing their Analysis? There should be laws against this reality. I do hope the EU Psychoanalytic Institutes have integrity that those practicing in the US are not enforcing. And to be clear, I did attempt a Lawsuit; however, in Good Old Corporate America, Psychiatrists are ALL LAWYERED UP, protecting our sacred doctors from prosecution.
    BTW, after understanding all symbols in the aforementioned dream, I, at last was able to unlock the causes of poor mental health, and a long stream of bad judgments. What a wonderful feeling.
    AM I looking for revenge or Loving Kindness? Neither; I'm looking for TRANSPARENCY - Open Dialogue. None available; I think those involved are waiting (hoping) for my death, so all this will remain hidden, covert! Believe me, this is Mind Boggling to me! Especially since I'm nearly convinced that we live in a Simulated Reality. Did I create this version of my reality/Life Experience...or, did I simply follow some preconceived/predestined path? These are notions I would enjoy investigating. My entire life I describe as experiential; I am not a scholar. I've always considered my best attribute to be my Curiosity.
    I began looking for answers to reasons for unhappiness in 6th grade. By 7th grade I acknowledged projection, without understanding it is a natural phenomenon.
    I am Deep, not brilliant.

    Now that I am listening, I disagree with several ideas you express. First of all, unless the client has superficial issues, there will be no "Talking Cure." The cure will only be found in correct dream interpretation; my experience is that Analysts are not good with dream interpretation, not to mention that helpful hints are extremely rare, as is dialogue of any sort. The "being in listening" mode, only, MUST be altered! Many, many times I have stated that individuals, themselves, only, can cure themselves. Analysts are best for introducing the Client to discovering their emotions and subsequent feelings, becoming aware of dreams (recording), projections, self observation, and most importantly - connecting the dots, so that the client understands that memories, events, emotions and fantasies are all interconnected.
    The Transference requires a separate discussion, since most Clients probably are too defended to be open and honest. I was! And yes, I entered analysis completely Unconscious; I was extremely conflicted. Unwinding my psyche, and layered neuroses required constant thought, feelings, and self observation. My earliest memories are from age 2 - 2.5 years old. Yes, everything is grist for the mill.

    But fundamentally this isn't correct the subconscious is the tendency to think feel etc which is instantly repressed or blocked we do not want to think feel this for whatever reason so it is not something which exists as such it is a tendency fits with sanskaras or hindu idea of grooves in mind , Yoga = virttis or mind vibrations which then determines our personality due a lot to early trauma unmet need etc . Thoughts please .
