Shall Drawing Become Part of Free Association?: Proposal for a Modification in Psychoanalytic Technique

Linda A. Wimer Brakel, M.D.


Three psychoanalytic case vignettes are presented where drawing is used beneficially as part of the free-associative process. The history of the psychoanalytic use of drawing is briefly reviewed, together with a new technical proposal regarding the role of drawing in free association. Justification for testing this modification leads to a consideration of methodological issues and the nature of free association. Possible advantages of this modification, including enhanced clinical understanding through integration of pictorial and verbal modes, and greater potential for access to the period of life where experience is more visually dominated, are considered and also discussed in relation to dual hemispheric mental organization.
