Problems of Training Analysis

Phyllis Greenacre, M.D.


Problems of training analysis are described in detail, and these are discussed in their various ramifications. While these difficulties, implicit in the training situation, cannot be wholly eliminated, their consideration and discussion may be of value in resensitizing training analysts to their significances and so diminish their untoward effects.

It appears that inadequate attention to the subtle narcissistic pressures in the student's analysis, and in the reciprocal self-analysis of the training analyst, are the source of the most crucial problems described. Alertness to these hazards and strict adherence

to the underlying principles, and to the basic rules of analysis, offer our best safeguards in the complicated relationships of analytic training.
