Final part of a short series of videos introducing the concept of repression in psychoanalysis. In this bonus video, we look at the concept of ‘primal’ repression, tracing the idea from early psychology, through Freudian psychoanalysis, and how Lacan develops it in theory practice.

Check out the other videos in this series, and videos on other topics, here.
