chapter  18
Insights, Epiphanies, and Working Through: On Healing, Self-Healing, and Creativity in the Writer and the Analyst
Pages 19

In this chapter I will offer some thoughts about writers and analysts as they go about their respective tasks. More specifi cally, I will focus on aspects of their psychologies that play key roles in the work that they do. I will also attempt to delineate some qualities that they have in common and in what ways they differ. What I have to say is quite limited and incomplete; I have made no effort to be thorough or comprehensive but simply to present some preliminary ideas as a way of introducing this most intriguing and complex topic.
