Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Discussion (I): Never Ever Stop Learning More About Supervision

Kenneth Israelstam

It is heartwarming to be able to immerse myself in such enriching articles that contribute to psychoanalysis’ much-needed and growing emphasis, on being able to understand, expand, and articulate the process of analytic supervision. I am especially pleased to find that these articles cover collectively what are, for me, the central core issues that require further exploration: a conceptual framework of education; the relationship between theory and practice of psychoanalysis and supervision; relating candidate learning objectives to goals of supervision; and the how-to of practice, and, very important, research.

The analytic model based on the wise elders’ stance of, I know, I teach, you learn, has prevailed now for too long. This collection of articles has certainly helped to lead readers away from what has essentially been, a deterministic, ordered, and knowing framework, toward I inspire, stimulate, influence; you learn, essentially a postmodern view, where immediacy, ambiguity, and doubt are valued.

I begin with Gábor Szőnyi’s article. Without offering his direct opinion, Szőnyi describes the Budapest model of supervision, where the analyst provides a dual function of analyst and supervisor. He points out that this practice of the analysts’ dual roles continued until after WWII, when the Hungarian Society joined the International Psychoanalytic Association (IPA) and, thereby, (with reluctance) were obliged to abide by their standards of separate roles for analysis and supervision.
