jo i am in psychoanalysis. i find it fantastic. in fact, i was thinking of writing a piece about it. i think people just have no idea of what contemporary psychoanalysts do. no idea at all.

That would be interesting! Yeah, I think most peoples' idea of psychoanalysis (including mine) is stuck in the late seventies at best.

jo yeah, at best. seriously. pretty tragic, actually, since it's a deeply human form of treatment.


message 5: by Hazel (new)

Hazel I've done it. Is it unusual in the US?


message 6: by jo (new) - added it

jo not the most popular form of treatment. most people practice some form of CBT.


message 7: by Hazel (new)

Hazel I think we may have followed you in that. The previous government set out to increase the availability of talking therapies under the NHS, and succeeded in legitimising CBT as a panacea for all ills and squeezing out other approaches. I'm working on a project aimed at widening the range and choice available.
