Psychoanalysis went underground in communist Russia - books were hidden, sessions held in secret. In St Petersburg, Chris Ledgard meets Catherine Crowther and Jan Wiener. The two therapists, trained at the Society of Analytical Psychology in London, are helping to re-introduce Jungian analysis to Russian society. Their new Russian colleagues discuss inter-generational clashes, conflicting ideas about the individual in society, and how the modern Russian mind deals with the shadows of the past.
Producer: Chris Ledgard.
