The Difficulties of the Training Analyst in the Training Analysis

Arnold Z. Pfeffer

This is a report of the Pre-Congress meeting of the International Psycho-Analytical Association in Paris, July 1973. The topic was 'The Training Analyst and the Difficulties in the Psychoanalytical Training Situation'. The four preceding Pre-Congresses concerned themselves with the following aspects of psychoanalytic education: selection of candidates; the training analysis; supervision; and the assessment of candidates' progress.

Approximately 150 training analysts first met to hear and discuss an introductory paper by Dr A. Limentani of London. Then they divided into ten discussion groups. The participants met for three sessions, a total of five hours. This was followed by a plenary session at which Mrs Joyce McDougall of Paris and Dr H. S. Klein of London presented summaries of the ten group discussions. I am grateful to both of them for their excellent reports which have contributed much to the present report which is, with additions, essentially the same as the report delivered to the Congress meeting that followed. In this brief report it will only be possible to summarize the main themes and some of the minority views, and I hope that the discussion participants, chairmen and secretaries of groups will understand and accept this limitation.

The full title of the Pre-Congress meeting was: 'The Training Analyst and the Difficulties in the Training Psychoanalytical Situation: Difficulties Arising from the Training Organization, the Training Analyst and the Candidate'.
