IPA Podcasts

The IPA hosts two podcasts - Talks On Psychoanalysis and Off the Couch.

Talks On Psychoanalysis is dedicated to theoretical debates, clinical subjects and their implications in daily life. Talks On Psychoanalysis is produced by the Website Editorial Board, created and edited by Gaetano Pellegrini, and available on all the main podcast platforms. For questions and proposals please send an email to: ipatalks@ipa.world

On Off the Couch we meet psychoanalysts who work in dialysis units, prenatal clinics, corporate board rooms, community centers, humanitarian organizations, and with vineyard workers just to name a few. We hope these conversations expand our awareness of how broadly psychoanalytic thinking extends into our communities. Off the Couch is produced and hosted by Harvey Schwartz MD, Chair of the IPA in Health Committee, and Steven S. Rolfe MD.
Talks on Psychoanalysis

Dr. Kunihiro Matsuki

In this week's episode we explore the core psychoanalytic method and the differences between psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Our presenter Dr Kunihiro Matsuki, President of the Japanese Psychoanalytic Society, 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 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 such as Bion and Meltzer. In 2016 he also won the Japanese Psychoanalytical Association’s Distinguished Publications Award. We are so honoured to welcome Dr Matsuki. 21 July 2020
