Candidates Association

Review by:
Ellis Mischel, M.D.

One of the primary functions and objectives of the Candidates Association is to promote and develop good, healthy relationships among the candidates, as well as between the Candidates Association and the Institute, the Association, and the Karen Horney Clinic. Our meetings during the past year were planned with this in mind at all times. They were held on Saturday nights in the informal, comfortable atmosphere of our homes, a proper setting for the inclusion of both professional and social aspects of our relatedness. Marital partners were invited, so that the oft-heard and not unjustified complaint of “another night away from home” would be obviated. There were four meetings in all. They were well-attended and well worth the time and effort expended in their planning and preparation.

The professional portion of the meetings was on the same high level as heretofore. Dr. Claude H. Miller presented a well-prepared paper dealing with the analysis of a patient who showed extreme hopelessness. In treatment he demonstrated the effective use of an interim negative therapeutic reaction. At a later meeting, Drs. Alexandra and Martin Symonds presented theoretical and clinical material concerning the relationship between parents and children with specific reference to the major solutions. The discussion following each of these papers was lively and stimulating, and the meetings continued far into the night. Conversation, food, and drink were far from lacking.

The final meeting of the year was especially memorable because it was the first one held at our new home, the Karen Horney Clinic Building.
