Psychotherapy and Living Without Fear

Psychotherapy and Living Without Fear

This 20 minute TEDx video Living Without Fear by Dr Kim discusses the effects of early memories and how these memories affect everything we do in life. Dr Jee Hyun Kim currently leads a research team working on memory aspects of early-onset anxiety disorders and drug addiction in the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, University of Melbourne. Her research suggests cognitive-behavioural therapies have different effectiveness depending on one’s age, and advocates treatment of mental disorders during childhood. The treatment of Psychotherapy focuses very much on early childhood memories and the unconscious way these memories affect the behaviour patterns of adults. Psychotherapy & Living Without Fear work together to help a person live a better life through releasing these early childhood memories in therapy.

Her research in memory across development began when she received Bachelor of Psychology with 1st Class Honours and the University Medal in 2004 from the University of New South Wales, Australia. She then received a Ph.D. in 2008 for research in memory retrieval, forgetting, inhibition and erasure from UNSW. While she was at Michigan University for her postdoctoral training, UNSW gave her U-committee Award for Research Excellence in Science in 2010. Dr Kim has recently been honoured with the Australian Psychological Society’s Early Career Research Award in 2012. She has featured regularly on ABC radio, including ‘Radio Australia’, and has recently featured on Channel Ten’s ‘The Project’.

TEDx Talks


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).

Online Psychotherapy Vs. Traditional

Online Psychotherapy Vs. Traditional 

Psychotherapy is called the ‘Talking Cure’ and it seems a recent study at the University of Zurich, Switzerland has shown that online psychotherapy is just as efficient as the old fashioned traditional, in person therapy. When it comes to Online Psychotherapy Vs. Traditional Therapy it has been proven that Online Psychotherapy is just as good. The clinical research showed that the results for online therapy actually exceeded all expectations. A total of 6 therapists treated 62 patients all of whom were mildly depressed. The patients were divided into 2 groups and randomly assigned to either the online psychotherapy or the face-to-face therapy. A total of 8 sessions using different techniques were used and in the medium term online therapy was more effective.

Professor Andreas says: “In both groups, the depression values fell significantly,” 

At the end of the treatment, no more depression could be diagnosed in 53 percent of the patients who underwent online therapy – compared to 50 percent for face-to-face therapy. Three months after completing the treatment, the depression in patients treated online even decreased whereas those treated conventionally only displayed a minimal decline: no more depression could be detected in 57 percent of patients from online therapy compared to 42 percent with conventional therapy.

In both groups the degree of satisfaction was equally high with the statistics showing 96 percent of the online therapy patients as opposed to 91 percent of the conventional therapy rated the contact with the therapist as close and personal.

“In the medium term, online psychotherapy even yields better results. Our study is evidence that psychotherapeutic services on the internet are an effective supplement to therapeutic care,” concludes Professor Andreas Maercker.
