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.
