Review by:
Stanley S. Wetss

The Editorial Committee of the International Psycho-Analytical Association is to be congratulated for initiating a new monograph series. The theory and practice of psychoanalysis can only be enhanced by this new venture. There is much valuable information from past conferences and symposia that has remained unavailable, since many of the papers have not been published. The new series will help remedy this situation, and psychoanalysts from all over the world will have an opportunity to learn from each other. One hopes that the monographs will be translated into the three other official languages of the Association, French, German, and Spanish.

The Eighth Conference on Training of the International Psycho-Analytical Association that was held in New York City in July 1979 dealt with the impact and influence of psychotherapy upon psychoanalytic education. The proceedings of this conference have now been published as Monograph No. 1, edited by Edward Joseph and Robert Wallerstein. The topic of psychotherapy, i.e., psychotherapy based on and supported by psychoanalytic knowledge, is surely an important one. The great majority of psychoanalysts practice psychotherapy before, during, and after graduation. Nevertheless, psychotherapy has been viewed by psychoanalytic institutes as a method that does not have an independent dignity and value of its own; and the formal study and teaching of psychotherapy for the most part has been avoided and left to psychiatric residencies.
