It Takes Three to Understand One: The Essential Role of Ongoing Consultation

  • Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute 32841 Middlebelt Road Farmington Hills, MI, 48334 United States (map)

Course Description:

Psychoanalytic training has often perpetuated a myth that once an analyst has graduated, he or she should be able to practice without assistance. In reality, due to the ongoing influence of transference/countertransference dynamics, even the most well trained and experienced analysts inevitably become mired in enactments that operate outside the analyst’s consciousness.  Therefore, it is argued, it is imperative that analysts seek ongoing consultation for their psychotherapy and psychoanalytic work.  This presentation examines six aspects of receiving and providing consultation that improve analysts’ functioning.
