Revue Française De Psychanalyse. XLIII, 1979: Philosophizing about the Training of Analysts. E. Kestemberg. Pp. 287-295.

Kestemberg focuses on how the training analyst functions and how he contributes to the transmission of analytic knowledge. She discusses how analytic training helps an individual acquire the knowledge to function in this capacity. She considers the analyst's therapeutic ambitions, what can be required of him or her in training, how he or she is aided to achieve the abilities, and who is chosen for the function of transmission. She strongly emphasizes the length of training and the requirement that an analyst function in solitude and secret with many different patients who place diverse demands upon him. In spite of this isolation there must be common aspects in the treatment which rest on a theory he has acquired. The training analyst's essential function is to bring to light the unconscious, not to achieve narcissistic fulfillment. (One can sometimes tell who an individual's analyst was by the way the person talks or by what he says, unfortunately.) The training analyst must renounce forcing upon the candidate an analytic ideology and instead find a rhythm appropriate to each candidate. The elaboration of psychoanalytic science within the institutes will aid him in this effort.
