Reasons for Personal Therapy Given by Psycho Analytically Oriented Psychotherapists and Their Effects on Personal Wellbeing and Professional Development

David E. Orlinsky, Ph.D.

In this article, questions raised in the personal memoirs by Geller (2013) and McWilliams (2013) about their own experiences in psychotherapy are examined using relevant data about psychoanalytic and other therapists collected as part of the multi-year international study of therapist development conducted by the Society for Psychotherapy Research Collaborative Research Network. The analyses reported compare basic professional and demographic characteristics of strongly psychoanalytically oriented therapists with those who are minimally analytic-psychodynamic, and compare the use of personal therapy by strongly psychoanalytically oriented therapists with minimally analytic-psychodynamic therapy. Finally, the reasons given by strongly psychoanalytically oriented therapists for seeking therapy are related to the personal benefit and the influence

on professional development that therapists ascribed to their own therapy. The article illustrates the mutual relevance and converging contributions that clinical reports and systematic empirical research can have in expanding our understanding of the personal experiences and professional development of psychoanalytic psychotherapists.
