The Forum Model of the Círculo Psicanalítico do Rio de Janeiro A New Approach to Transmission and Training in Psychoanalysis

Jochen Kemper, B.B.A.

Based on a critical analysis of certain pioneering episodes of the history of psychoanalysis in Rio de Janeiro and guided by the fallacies and failures of the classical training model which local history has revealed, the author addresses the urgent need for structural changes in the transmission and training of psychoanalysis.

Such change in training is essentially motivated by the need to protect and preserve the so-called training analyses from the negative, often paranoid, institutional transference influence which necessarily develops and interfers with these, when the latter are ‘institutionalized’, that is, placed within the structural framework, controlled and administered by the training institutes of the classical model.

The author presents and discusses the preliminary experience obtained with the Forum model of the Circulo Psicanalítico do Rio de Janeiro. In essence this model reflects our views that training and control analyses are the sole and unique responsibility of the individual concerned and admit no institutional controls or interference.

Having thus placed the training and control analyses outside of the institutional training framework, our Society no longer selects candidates for training, nor ‘‘qualifies” and “nominates” psychoanalysts in the classical manner. The responsibility for psychoanalytic legitimation—in reality, for self-legitimation—is entirely delegated to the individual himself. The objective of the training institute—today's Forum—is to provide for the scientific program of the Society and for permanent training in theory and clinical practice on all levels for members and outside participants who wish to join us.
