Patients Reading about Themselves: A Stimulus to Psychoanalytic Work

Judy L. Kantrowitz, Ph.D.

Patients' reading of their psychoanalysts' papers about them as a vehicle for psychoanalytic work is a relatively new phenomenon in the field. Over the past five years, reports of analysts' employment of their writing in this fashion have begun to appear in the analytic literature.
