Regression and Persecution in Analytic Training. Reflections on Experience

Monica Bruzzone, Eleonora Casaula, Juan Pablo Jimenez and Juan Fco. Jordan


This paper is a reflection on the psychoanalytic training experience written by a group of final year students.

The paper highlights regressive and persecutory aspects which from time to time interfered with the achievement by the students of an adequate personal and pedagogic experience.

Some hypotheses explaining the underlying factors of the experiences described are offered. These factors, it is suggested, exist at the level of interaction between the basic elements of the training itself, i.e. the training analysis, the seminars and the supervisions.

It is suggested that, notwithstanding the fact that many of these vicissitudes are part and parcel of the process of achieving an analytic identity, the possibility that they have been accentuated by certain aspects of the training methodology cannot be ruled out.
