Ana Boczar, M.SC., Ana Cristina Teixeira da Costa Salles, M.SC., Arlindo Carlos Pimenta, M.D., Carlos Roberto Drawin, Eliana Rodrigues Pereira Mendes, M.SC., Maríla Brandão Lemos Morais, M.D. and Suzanne Beaudette Drummond, M.SC.

It is through metapsychology that clinical work encounters the possibility of universalization, while metapsychology finds the possibility of fulfillment in clinical work.
