Learning from Experience and the Experience of Learning. Reflections on the Psychoanalytical Training

Franz Wellendorf, Dr. Phil

The destiny of the learning processes in the context of the psychoanalytical training systems was investigated. The emotional experiences of those learning and those teaching in this system have a decisive influence on the learning of psychoanalysis. As a first step, the concept of learning through experience, taken from Bion, is presented. Subsequently, the manifold and conflicting experiences are discussed, which those participating in the training system experience. The dialectic of fragmentation on the one hand and inner and outer integration on the other hand are discussed in detail. A number of factors are noted, which make it difficult to find ways of relating the different learning processes in psychoanalytical training to one another in a clear and differentiated manner.
