In this episode we explore the core psychoanalytic method and the differences between psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
Our presenter Dr Kunihiro Matsuki presents two methods relating to perceiving a patient’s unconscious, one linked to the idea of ‘evenly suspended attention’, the other in relation to “free-floating attention’.
Dr Kunihiro Matsuki is President of The Japanese Psychoanalytic Society, Member of the IPA Asia-Pacific Planning Committee and Chair of the IPA Asia-Pacific Sydney 2020 Conference Committee. He is the author of 12 monographs, many psychoanalytic papers and is responsible for the Japanese translations of fundamental authors like Bion and Meltzer. In 2016 he also won The Japanese Psychoanalytical Association’s Distinguished Publications Award.
