Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. III, 1955: Termination of the Training Analysis Within the Framework of Present-Day Institutes. Rudolf Ekstein. Pp. 600-614.

Ekstein reviews opinions on the complications in termination caused by the fact that the training analyst is a decisive person in the life of a candidate. The training analysis should be a thorough classical one which not only frees the candidate from his neurotic illness but also permits his achievement of maximum insight and maturity, so that he may use himself creatively in a disciplined, skilful, artistic, and empathic fashion. He must be capable of constant self-reanalysis. The training relationship makes this achievement more complicated. Most analysts believe that contact outside analytic sessions should be kept to a minimum during treatment and for some time thereafter to permit adequate opportunity for 'mourning'. The increase in size of institutes, with training committees making the decisions, adds to the complexity of the problem. Ekstein believes that if the analyst can function as part of the group and accept a minimum of basic common standards despite his individual views he can offer the candidate a stable situation in which analysis and termination may proceed.
