Arthur Janov’s Primal Therapy (2018)
An associative view of the days, nights and characters that enclosed the life of Arthur Janov, which defines in the conclusion “It’s never too late to have a happy childhood”. Arthur Janov (1924-2017) was a classic instance of being the right charismatic therapist at the right time – the zeitgeist. Dr. Janov first heard about the embryo to the primal scream through one of his patients when he performed conventional psycho dynamic therapy. It was an absurd theatre performance by Raphael Montañez Ortiz called “Mommy, Daddy” presented in London, 1966. The birth of Primal therapy happened when Arthur Janov’s book, “The Primal Scream” was published early 1970.
