Assessment of Progress in a Training Analysis

Joan Fleming and Stanley S. Weiss


We offer a point of view which we feel merits attention and discussion by psychoanalytic educators about when, how, and by whom the evaluation of the preparatory goal of the training analysis should be done. This evaluation should occur when the candidate and his training analyst feel he is ready to analyse a patient. It should consist of interviews by others than the training analyst and should precede the beginning of theoretical courses.

We propose that this progression be called matriculation. We have (1) contrasted the suggested matriculation interviews with those at selection, including specific statements of what to look for at matriculation; (2) offered guidelines for the training analyst to use as he reflects on his candidate's progress and readiness to analyse a patient under

supervision; and (3) presented three vignettes to illustrate how the analytic work involving matriculation can enter the analytic process and can be evaluated by sensitive interviewers for the benefit of the candidate, the training analyst, and the entire analytic programme.
