Review by:
Lucy M. Zabarenko, Ph.D.

There are times when even the most implacable skeptic must ponder the meaning of coincidence. On the day this review was begun the morning's throngs of newsletters bore the news of the arbitrated settlement of the suit against the American Psychoanalytic Association by the American Psychological Association, one reported provision of the suit being that 38% of training slots in certified institutes must be reserved for nonmedical clinicians.

An hour later I arrived to teach the mechanisms of defense at an undergraduate institution working hard to polish its academic luster as a citadel of liberal arts generalism. The freshmen students interrupted my stately deliberations after three minutes by reciting the entire litany. It had been doled out to them during orientation on the day they were introduced to ideas central to education in the humanities, and, gleefully exhilarated, they added that they also possessed many cheerful facts about the id, ego, and superego. What more eloquent testimony could there be that Weissman and Thurnblad's volume appears at a time when psychoanalysis, perhaps still under siege, is nonetheless accorded a certain recognition?

Most of the 13 papers in this book were originally written for a conference on psychiatric education at Michael Reese Hospital in March 1981. Of the 16 contributors, all active in psychiatric education, 9 have roots in the Chicago area, and a different assortment of 9 are formally associated with psychoanalytic training facilities.
