Arnold Rothstein, M.D.

In concluding this third volume of the Workshop Series of the American Psychoanalytic Association I am aware of a continuity with what I noted in concluding the first two volumes of the series. In addition I am reminded that one of the goals of this concluding chapter is to make a statement of the state of the question(s) that served as the facilitating frame of reference for the workshop that resulted in this monograph.

In 1985, I began the concluding chapter to Models of the Mind: Their Relationships to Clinical Work by noting that:

In writing these concluding remarks I am acutely aware that my commitments to the structural hypothesis and to a metatheoretical perspective on its evolutionary development significantly influence my experience of the alternative theories upon which I am about to comment. … Nevertheless I have been able to “try a theory on,” to immerse myself in it in an attempt to experience its usefulness in analytic work. These experiences have convinced me that there is considerable value in thinking about what might be helpful in the ideas of colleagues with whom I have considerable disagreement [p. 129].
