The Psychohistory Review: Studies of Motivation in History and Culture. XIX, 1990/91.

Thomas Acklin

The entire fall 1990 issue is dedicated to the Menninger School of Psychiatry in memory of Karl A. Menninger. Of special interest for the psychoanalytically oriented reader are comments by Lawrence J. Friedman that the Menninger School of Psychiatry succeeded in transmitting Freud's ideas on the human psyche to a larger proportion of American medical professionals than has occurred at any time before or since. He comments on the psychodynamics of students of Karl Menninger in their relation to such a powerful father figure. He discusses the broader issues of power relationships within psychoanalytic institutes, the political connection between the training analyst and his or her analysands, the nature of confidentiality in the analytic relationship and the consequences of violating it, as well as the very utility of psychoanalytically informed therapy and its balance with organic aspects of treatment. James Carney, in his contribution, shows the influence of Smith Ely Jelliffe on Menninger: in his movement away from nineteenth century descriptive psychiatry to psychoanalysis, in his understanding of psychoanalytic technique and procedure, and in his stance against lay analysis.
