Psychoanalytic Standards: Highest or Good Enough

There is disagreement amongst psychoanalysts about the aspirations that we should strive for in recruiting candidates, graduating analysts, and appointing training analysts. Some believe we should strive for excellence and the HIGHEST STANDARDS, while others believe we should strive for GOOD ENOUGH STANDARDS. I regretfully think, for several reasons, that striving for the HIGHEST standards is a fatally flawed goal –and know that I make these comments as a Training Analyst and Fellow of the American Psychoanalytic Association’s Board of Professional Standards–thus, someone who has supposedly met the HIGHEST standards: Read the rest of this post »

Gigi Marks

Welcome back, everyone, and Happy New Year!

We have some lovely new poems for you this morning.

I turn to the international psychoanalytic website, as it is usually pretty accurate in how it follows national and international events and trends , for solace.

The international psychoanalytic website has therefore also shown some evidence of this unrest as your will see. Once again, I have attempted not to repeat the announcements I listed previously.

My own choices will be followed by a list of all the postings as usual.
