Luke F. Grande

Barratt proposes a clear distinction between the various forms of psychotherapy on the one hand and the psychoanalytic method on the other. In the former, the therapist, working with a set social and psychological structure in mind, aims to help the patient reposition himself or herself within that context, thereby making a better adjustment and feeling better. As an extreme example, he describes the talking cure used in cases of dangerous, protracted labor among Cuna Indian women. In contrast, he maintains, the psychoanalyst works by constantly questioning and using a method that is radical and deconstructive.
