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.

Letters in Psychoanalysis and Posttermination Contact: Mabel Dodge's Correspondence with Smith Ely Jelliffe and A. A. Brill

Patricia R. Everett, Ph.D.

In this essay, I will discuss Mabel Dodge's correspondence with her two psychoanalysts, Smith Ely Jelliffe and A. A. Brill, as a way of looking at the relationship between analyst and patient at the time of the early practice of psychoanalysis in the United States. I also consider Dodge's perceptions and understanding of herself as revealed, and most likely partly developed, in her written exchanges with her analysts, both during and after analysis. To place this correspondence in context, I will look at historical and modern perspectives on extraanalytic and postanalytic contact between analyst and patient, with particular attention to ideas about the value of posttermination contact as a means of maintaining and furthering analytic gains. After presenting information about the archival materials used for this essay, I address the ethical and moral dilemmas of publishing such documents. Following a brief description of the lives of the individuals involved, I then look at Mabel Dodge's correspondence with Smith Ely Jelliffe and A. A. Brill.
