On Difference and the "Beyond Psychotherapy" of Psychoanalytic Method: The Pivotal Issue of Free-associative Discourse as De-repressive Praxis

MedWorm - Tue, 2022-03-01 14:34
Am J Psychoanal. 2021 Mar;81(1):27-50. doi: 10.1057/s11231-021-09283-1.ABSTRACTIt is argued that, in the course of the history of psychoanalysis since 1914 or thereabouts, the clinical and theoretical interests of psychotherapy have occluded our comprehension of the radicality of the free-associative method that is special to psychoanalysis. Setting aside the entirety of the range of endeavors that we might call "psychotherapy," this essay defines critically the practices of "psychoanalytically-informed therapies" and distinguishes them from Sigmund Freud's "analysis" that is tied to the unique method by which he discovered the inherent repressiveness of self-consciousness. This thesis implies that the human psyche can neither be properly understood nor healed by theory-driven techniques t...

The Problems and Contradictions Inherent in Analytic Training and the Ultimate Requirement: Working with Uncertainty

MedWorm - Tue, 2022-03-01 14:34
Am J Psychoanal. 2021 Mar;81(1):51-59. doi: 10.1057/s11231-021-09284-0.ABSTRACTIn this essay, the author's aim is to outline the specifics of psychoanalytic intervention and its current relevance. She explores the boundaries of the clinician's identity, (whether psychotherapist or psychoanalyst), examines the training itself, as well as how and where one can develop the skills necessary to engage in this profession. She specifically assesses the Italian situation. For the construction of the identity of the therapist/psychoanalyst it is fundamental to learn how to tolerate uncertainty, seen here as a value, not a limitation, in contrast with the certainties which characterize other forms of psychotherapy. The complexity of psychoanalytic training is thus demonstrated as a function of two p...
