Mutual Healing and Its Limits in the Psychoanalytic Situation: Discussion of Brickman and Jacobs

Gary Rodin, M.D.

This editorial considers a unique pair of papers written by an analyst and his patient describing their journey during an analytic treatment in which the analyst suffered from a serious head injury. Drs. Brickman and Jacobs are to be commended for their honesty and bravery in describing this remarkable mutual process of recovery and healing and for their willingness to allow it to be exposed to others for their consideration. These accounts present a striking example of both mutuality and asymmetry in the analytic relationship and of intimacy, tenderness, and growth that evolved through this process. However, their account may also serve as a vehicle to raise questions about the limits of asymmetry and informed consent in the psychoanalytic situation and about the process of adjudication, protection, and professional regulation that should occur when an analyst becomes disabled.
