Reviews and Endorsements

‘A reader expecting from these pages some academic, traditional, reassuring confirmation of the previously existing educational mentality and processes in psychoanalysis could feel unexpectedly displaced and surprised by the content of some of these chapters. This book hosts a real, innovative debate among independent thinkers who are connected by a strong, genuine interest in transmitting psychoanalysis to future generations and who reflect, without bias or prejudice, on the experiences of their own and of previous generations.’
— Stefano Bolognini, President of the International Psychoanalytical Association; from the Foreword

‘This book is a landmark in the current discussion on analytic education. Well organized by Peter Zagermann, it brings to the reader a living debate among some of the most productive authors who have been reflecting on the controversial issue of the training analyst system. In order to revitalize psychoanalysis, it is time for a joint and courageous reflection on our educational system, its achievements and its failures. This book offers us a unique opportunity to get in touch with different experiences in many analytic centres and regions, in each one of which we can witness how the lack of open and clear debate can keep psychoanalytic education as a prey of past experience. I strongly recommend its reading to both experienced and new analysts, and I am certain that it will be astimulating bridge for the future.’
— Cláudio Laks Eizirik, Past President of the International Psychoanalytical Association, and contributor to this volume
