Gabriel De La Vega

This combined issue contains the contributions of those who attended the Seventh Psychoanalytic Congress in Latin America at Bogotá in 1969. The articles cover the focal subject of the Congress, the theory of technique. Jose A. Infante Vial of Chile discusses the technique of the first interview and other technical problems. It seems that Chilean analysts treat practically anyone and do not consider anyone unanalyzable. They do not put emphasis on superego manifestations, but actively use symbolic and countertransference material. This is strikingly different from the typical psychoanalytic approach in the United States and England. Luis E. Yamin H. of Colombia presents a paper focusing primarily on the treatment hours of a patient, demonstrating clinically the part played by the transference, countertransference, and extra-transference. By extra-transference he means the technical approach, the way an interpretation is constructed, how it is formulated, the manner in which the interpretation is offered to the patient, etc. Drs. Ribeiro, Zimmerman, and Wagner from Porto Alegre, Brazil, discuss not only the goals but periodic evaluation techniques used by the different psychoanalytic organizations comprising the C.O.P.A.L. Some Latin colleagues base their technique on the theory of ego psychology; some are strictly Kleinian. There are local variations on one or the other of these. Even among those who follow a particular theoretical orientation there are, of course, individual differences that can be perceived in interpretations and conclusions drawn from clinical data.
