Neuroanatomy of the Unconscious:
How our Bodies, Minds, and Brains Connect Beneath Awareness
Terry Marks-Tarlow, PhD
September 25, 2021
Since Freud’s popularization of psychoanalysis, the unconscious has been of interest to clinicians. But what is it—a realm of mind? Another name for the right brain? A tangle of neural circuitry? Does the unconscious reside primarily in the head? Or is it more related to bodily functioning? Does it belong to a single person or is it fully relational? What are implications for the notion of free will? This seminar integrates psychoanalysis, neurobiology, and nonlinear science to conceptualize the unconscious plus implications for psychotherapy. In the process, we will draw upon exciting brain scan research that is hot off the press. This seminar might change the very way you look at your self, others, and the therapeutic alliance.
