Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Termination of the Training Analysis Within the Framework of Present-Day Institutes

Rudolf Ekstein, Ph.D.

In a recent survey "On Current Trends in Psychoanalytic Training" (11) I recalled Freud's reference (17) to educating, healing, and governing as the three impossible professions, and suggested that the training analyst has chosen all three. For, he analyzes the students, he teaches, and he participates in decisions concerning the student's fate. The complex interweaving of these functions, which he must carry directly or indirectly, offers a seemingly "impossible" task within the context of the training analysis, particularly during the termination phase when the decision has to be made as to whether the requirement of the training analysis has been fulfilled. This requirement, which is a keystone in psychoanalytic training, has been established for about thirty years.

Even before 1922, at which time the standards were formally established, most of the early analysts underwent training analyses. While there is general acceptance today that every analyst must undergo an analytic experience of his own, widely divergent opinions exist regarding the nature of the training analysis, its timing and place in the total training, and the special technical problems it creates.
