"What is Psychoanalysis? Is it weird?" A 4-Part Educational Film Series for Students and Teachers

The Freud Museum has launched a new series of short films, produced with the generous support of the College of Psychoanalysts and the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research and the engagement of the Centre for Psychoanalysis, Middlesex University. Primarily aimed at young learners on A Level psychology courses, the films will facilitate what for many will be a first encounter with psychoanalytic ideas. 

The films address some of the key ideas that students are required to demonstrate knowledge of in their exams, augmenting and in some instances providing a counterweight to what is taught on A Level courses. They feature contributions from John Forrester, Astrid Gessert, Anouchka Grose, Darian Leader, Daniel Pick and Anne Worthington.

The idea for making these videos plus the project management was by Stefan Marianski, who is one of our MA graduates and now working for the Freud Museum. 

The films can be found here:

Below is the first video, 'Is it weird?' This episode covers:

  • Is psychoanalysis weird?
  • A talking cure
  • The unconscious
  • The ego is not master in its own house
  • Psychoanalysis and the 'cognitive approach'
