Over the past several decades, Joseph Lichtenberg has attempted to incorporate into psychoanalytic theory the growing body of research on infancy and the development of the prerepresentational self. His belief that the self is formed in interaction with caregivers has led him to postulate an intersubjective “two-person” analytic treatment.
