Dr Giac Giacomantonio is a Clinical Psychologist in Brisbane, Queensland. He has a special interest in Psychoanalysis and the Psychoanalytic Psychology of the Self.
Psychoanalysis is a form of psychotherapy that helps people by developing an understanding of their unique experiences of themselves, others, and the world. People who see a psychologist for psychoanalytic therapy typically value personal growth and self-development, and want to understand themselves better in addition to feeling better. It can be helpful with many different psychological problems, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, low motivation, dissatisfaction with achievements, relationship problems, and understanding how the past repeats itself in the present.
Giac has been a lecturer on psychoanalysis and clinical psychology, and a supervisor in the psychology and psychiatry training programmes at the University of Queensland, the Queensland University of Technology, and the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists. He has taught on the subjects of Meta-psychology, Clinical Theory and Technique in Psychoanalysis, and Professional Ethics. He completed doctoral research at the University of Queensland on Therapeutic Change, to examine the adequacy of explanatory models in psychotherapy research.
Giac maintains a private practice in Brisbane for individual psychotherapy, collegial consultation, and supervision for registrars.
