The Psychoanalytic Process

  • Helmut Thomä

Abstract

Although we have discussed various aspects of psychoanalytic treatment in the foregoing chapters, we have not focussed our attention on the role these aspects play in the therapeutic process as a whole. We have concentrated on segments of greatly varying duration within the course of treatment and alternated between macro- and microperspectives of the analytic process (see Baumann 1984). We have on the one hand used a magnifying glass to concentrate on small facets of treatment, such as the patient’s questions, and on the other hand investigated the analyst’s general treatment strategies — while maintaining the necessary distance to detail.
