Biography[ edit ] Baudouin was born Nancy, France. After studying literature, Charles Baudouin continued his education in philosophy at the Sorbonne, where he got interested by the personalities of Pierre Janet and Henri Bergson.

Switzerland also allowed him to get closer to Romain Rolland. Baudouin had his first analysis with Dr. Carl Picht, a Jungian. After meeting with Sigmund Freud in Vienna in , he began a second "didactic" analysis, from to , with Dr. Charles Odier, a Freudian of the time. A few years later, he followed up with a new analytical experience with Tina Keller. He did not neglect the historical foundations of psychoanalysis, particularly suggestion and hypnosis.

This experience and all his therapeutic practice, including the therapy of children and education led him to express the respective contributions of Freud and Jung with his own findings.

He published a pacifist journal, Le Carmel, published various articles mainly from to and, alternately, as of a monthly magazine Les Cahiers du Carmel. This is still published twice a year. It is the oldest French institute of psychoanalysis. The institute today has over a hundred practitioners in Europe and is represented in four countries: Belgium, France, Italy and Switzerland. It pursues a constant research on the theoretical and practical side, organizes conferences, seminars and symposiums open to the public and is always eager to train new members in the spirit of openness, which characterized its practice.

Theoretical concepts of the founders[ edit ] Baudouin supports his methodology on three levels the Psychagogy , depending on the degree of contribution of the unconscious. It therefore has three kinds of methods used separately, sequentially or simultaneously as appropriate: From the Conscious to the Conscious: "The educational methods" [2] [3] [ edit ] Work on the thought, the will, the action, Methods close to Psychotherapy of support and cognitive-behavioral.

From the Conscious to the Unconscious: "The suggestive methods" [4] [5] [6] [ edit ] Effect of a spontaneous suggestion, or induced by a hypnotic process. From the Unconscious to the Unconscious "The psychoanalytic methods" [7] [8] [ edit ] Baudouin based the psychoanalytic synthesis primarily on Freudian, Jungian and Adlerian based concepts, plus his own, clearing the vibrant and dynamic complementarity.

Of their oppositions, agreements or complementarity, the always shifting balance of the psychic system will depend. Works[ edit ] Through his numerous books and conferences, Baudouin promoted psychoanalysis not only in French-speaking countries but around the world. His work merits greater attention from modern historians and psychoanalysts. His concerns and fields of interest are often directly relevant to contemporary psychoanalysis.
