On the occasion of the XXV EPF Congress in Paris, we took the opportunity of the presence of many colleagues from different European and extra-European countries to interview them about issues that are somehow central to contemporary psychoanalytic practice. The collected material paints a diverse variety of models and points of view, offering a portrait of our discipline in which many psychoanalyses coexist. Which psychoanalytic concepts do they mostly refer to in their clinical practice? What do they think about the renewed attack to our discipline? How present is psychoanalysis in culture, education, mental health services of their countries? What about the reduction in the number of patients and candidates, the problem of ageing? Which answers to the requests of fewer session per week, of condensed or shuttle analysis, of telephone or Skype analysis? These three thematic videos – in their original language with English subtitles – offer a compilation of excerpts taken from the answers given by eighteen colleagues to the questions we asked them in Paris.
