Panel Report: Psychoanalysis In The Pacific Rim: Chaired by ROBERT L. TYSON, La Jolla, CA

Charles P. Fisher

The Chairman opened the panel and pointed out the historic significance of the title, ‘Psychoanalysis in the Pacific Rim’. Making explicit a meaning which may have been only latent, he commented that the panel itself was a piece of history happening ‘right now’. Only recently the International Psychoanalytical Association added a third region, Latin America. Until now, there has been no official recognition of the potential for a fourth region of the IPA in the Pacific Rim. In the next millennium, it is quite likely that this potential will become a reality. Many of the individuals participating in the panel and in the audience are likely to take part in organising a fourth IPA region.

Keigo Okonogi's paper was read by Toshi Maruta of the Mayo Clinic, who later served as translator for Okonogi. Okonogi divided the history of psychoanalysis in Japan into two periods—before and after World War II. The first Japanese papers on psychoanalysis were published in 1912. Japanese psychiatry, heavily influenced by Kraepelin, originally dismissed psychoanalysis as a ‘misguided theory of pan-sexualism’. However, in 1919 Kiyoyasu Marui, who came to the United States to study with Adolf Meyer, observed the influence of psychoanalysis on American psychiatry. On his return to Japan, Marui began to teach the theory of psychoanalysis (but little about technique) to a small group of psychiatrists at the University of Tohoku in Sendai. In 1933, Marui received approval to establish a Sendai branch of the IPA.
