Our Changing Views of the Therapeutic Action of Psychoanalysis: Comparing Strachey and Loewald

Arnold M. Cooper, M.D.

ABSTRACT

A comparison of Strachey and Loewald on the nature of therapeutic action reveals a deep shift in analytic interest away from the structural point of view and toward object relational and interpersonal frames of reference.

Loewald's work also illuminates a major challenge for contemporary psychoanalysis: the need for an integration of the now disparate languages of metapsychology and clinical process.
