Judy Teicholz, Ph.D and Frank Lachmann, Ph.D. will engage in a totally spontaneous, unrehearsed, improvisational dialogue about the present state and future of self psychology and psychoanalysis. They will address such topics as the anonymity of the analyst, analytic boundaries, enactments, and countertransference. Have the problems presented by patients in treatment changed since Freud’s time? If so, how does that affect the analytic stance? If the therapeutic encounter is co-created by analyst and analysand, are we creating different treatment relationships now? One other question has to do with the integration (or not) of diverse theories. What is lost, and what gained by having the analyst work toward integration across contemporary theories? Or — how can this be done, without losing theoretical coherence and responsiveness to the individual patient?
