Psychoanalysis is a body of theoretical knowledge, rooted in the practice of psychoanalysis, responding to the scientific requirement for clinical evidence, but also engaging in the method of free-floating attention, which allows psychoanalysts to listen to the unconscious functioning and psychic transformations during an analytic treatment. Freud, always respectful of the scientific challenge, gave us his observations of the classic cases in detail, highlighting the analytical unconscious. Following his example, and trying to update psychoanalytic research, the Three-Level Model for tracking transformations in psychoanalysis was developed as an observational tool that allows us to explore the patient’s difficulties and to observe the beneficial functional changes in them, studying sessions from the opening, middle and late phases of an analysis, in three consecutive approaches. The 3-LM explores changes in the patient in the ordinary language of the verbatim session material, then conceptualises the transformations, and then studies the relationship between the transformations and interpretations as they change over the course of the analysis. In this webinar Margaret Ann, Marianne and Luisa will introduce us to the challenge of modern psychoanalysis to find ways to observe when and how psychoanalysis brings about a "profound change in personality".
