Dear Sirs,

I share absolutely Furlong's (2005) view of the centrality of confidentiality in the analytic relationship, but would like to add this comment.

I have already underlined that it is confidentiality that gives birth to the psycho-relational flow between the two actors in the therapy, on which trust, the reciprocal collaborative alliance, and the system of mutual relations are inevitably built (Marzi, 1992, 2002). I am glad to see that Furlong's paper is in agreement with my positions, and that reflections of a similar nature also arise in different cultural contexts. Along these lines, the IPA set up a study group led by a Supervising Committee, chaired by Penelope Garvey (with members: Robert Pyles, North America; Romulo Lander, Latin America; and myself, Europe), which produced the first exhaustive review (Garvey and Layton, 2004). From this work, however, it is evident that the issue of confidentiality is quite complex and must be dealt with as a whole, in all its manifestations and varieties.
