In recent years, psychologists and anthropologists integrate in their research designs psychoanalytically informed methods in order to address the unconscious forces and motivations that provide a deeper understanding of individual experience and a better image of the research environment. Also, psychoanalysts used their psychoanalytic knowledge to design a specific methodology for the study of unconscious phenomena outside the clinical setting. The Psychoanalytic ‘Laboratory’ offers a new perspective on psychoanalytically informed researched interview as an experimental situation, that offers the possibility to test psychoanalytic theories, not only to illustrate them.

Simona Reghintovschi has a PhD in psychoanalytic studies from University of Essex, Great Britain. She teaches Projective Methods and Applied Psychoanalysis at Titu Maiorescu University in Bucharest. She is psychoanalyst, full member of Romanian Society of Psychoanalysis, and co-founder of Insight Association dedicated to the advancement of psychoanalysis.
