In this two-part lecture, Dr. France Janov explores the basics of Primal Therapy, how pain is laid down in our brain and registered in our psychophysiology. How to undo the effect of that pain by going back to the origin of the feelings. We explain how we can change our lives and free ourselves from neurosis.

We also explore the role of insights, what are act-outs and what function they serve.
