I recently fount this video from the American Psychoanalytic Association called “Getting to The Root of The Problem”. I thought that it was very beautifully done and uses some lovely metaphors for thinking about our emotional lives and the internal world we all have and how it develops. In psychoanalytic theory this internal world is often called the unconscious. It looks at how we grow through nurturing and positive experiences and are hurt through troubling ones and how all of this ends up becoming who we are as people. The video uses metaphors of trees and gardens for our emotional lives and the unconscious and gardening for the work of psychoanalytic treatment. I hope that you enjoy it as I did.
