The Psychoanalytic Study of Society. XIV. 1989: Psychoanalytic Anthropology: The Analogous Tasks of the Psychoanalyst and the Ethnographer. Mark J. Gehrie. Pp. 41-69.

John J. Hartman

Gehrie addresses the issue of the validity of attempts to utilize psychoanalytic theory to inform cultural behavior and content, and suggests a methodology to enhance this aim. He proposes the clinical model of the psychoanalytic interview organized around transference and countertransference issues (broadly defined) to gather data from the field. He concludes that a research alliance, analogous to the therapeutic alliance, can be forged with subjects in the field around the aim of understanding without inviting undue regression and without the implication of pathology. Gehrie offers an example of such an interview and discusses its advantages and drawbacks for anthropological field study.
