Michael B. Donner, PhDMany people think that psychoanalysis is about lying on a couch and free associating, while talking to an older man with a beard. Psychoanalysis is actually the study of how the conscious and unconscious mind develops, and how our early experiences affect every aspect of our lives and relationships. This discussion will explore how psychoanalysis helps people to understand their everyday experiences.
