Approaches to Integration in Psychoanalytic Theory and Practice

Pluralism has troubled the field of psychoanalysis since at least the 1970’s. In fact, this pluralism has probably always existed, ever since Freud first talked about how the mind works. In any case, we now live in an era where psychoanalytic models of the minds abound.

Approaches to Integration in Psychoanalytic Theory and Practice

 

Pluralism has troubled the field of psychoanalysis since at least the 1970’s. In fact, this pluralism has probably always existed, ever since Freud first talked about how the mind works. In any case, we now live in an era where psychoanalytic models of the minds abound. These models compete with one another for which approach is the “correct” one, and how we should know which one to use, etc., to mention only a few areas of intense debate.

At the same time, there are several models of integration which are very useful in the approach to our field and especially, to our patients. This paper will focus on Approaches to Psychoanalytic Integration in Theory and Practice.
