Chapter 3: Letters of 1952–1953

Holt & Luborsky 58








Robert R. Holt and Lester B. Luborsky, 1958. Taken at time of publication of Personality Patterns of Psychiatrists. (click to enlarge)


Topics Discussed:

  • • Rapaport’s memories from arrival in U.S., his first job, and his first years at Menninger’s
  • • Holt-Luborsky book Personality Patterns of Psychiatrists
  • • Problems of selecting persons for training in psychiatry and psychoanalysis

Rapaport’s informal, often caustic comments about his first encounters with American psychiatrists and his first colleagues and the account of his early struggles make fascinating reading.
