The Talking Cure of Psychoanalysis
In this complex world where we live quite frantic lives, finding someone that can offer advice to deal with the often repressed struggles of the individual psyche can be a challenge to allow an individual to realise their potential of living a satisfied life. This led to psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud to utilise the term “the talking cure” obtained from one of his patients to describe the process by which he got people to deal with their problems.
On the couch today Stephen Hill talked to two psychoanalysts with several decades of experience about their new book “The Talking Cure” which chronicles the life-changing power of therapy. This is the first part of the conversation with Professor Gillian Straker and Dr. Jacqui Winship.
