Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

Psychoanalytic Expertise

Michael J. Tansey, Ph.D.

There is substantial and often heated debate concerning the true nature of psychoanalytic expertise. The position is taken that no such characterization will ever attain anything approaching universal consensus. Conclusions that are drawn concerning the nature of psychoanalytic expertise are unalterably influenced by underlying fundamental assumptions concerning emotional development, psychopathology (when that term is even used), and what is needed for useful change to come about. This paper explores the nature of psychoanalytic expertise as it is conceptualized and understood within the three models articulated by Mitchell (1988) that have dominated psychoanalytic theorizing: the drive-conflict model, the developmental-arrest model, and the relational-conflict model. Special attention is paid to considerations of asymmetry and mutuality in the analytic relationship.
