A Psychoanalytic Research Perspective for the Institute Candidate

Theodore Laquercia, Ph.D.

The institute candidate's research project can reflect (a) understanding of the dynamics of his or her specific case; (b) systematic attempts to answer any question(s) raised in the single case study, thereby contributing to the clarification, or even modification, of theory; and (c) an integration of his/her unique experience with the technical skills applicable to this particular analysis. This article guides the student to a perspective of observation of data presented by the patient and recommends a careful analysis of findings, recognizing the differences between conjecture, assumption, inference, and certitude. As such, the study also represents the candidate's ability to conduct the analysis incorporating what is learned in the institute while presenting a scientifically valid research project.
