Problems of a training analyst (undated) book
My introductory paragraph today was written after the bulk of this paper had been completed. By that time I knew that the training analyst’s conflict centred on his relation to the Society much more than on his candidate’s who all the same focused them. Consequently I shall leave the actual training analysis to the end where I shall only discuss it briefly: mostly we shall occupy ourselves with the relation between the training analyst and the Society, represented by the professional committee, as it exists now or has functioned in the past. It has, I think, been largely due to the behaviour of the training analysts that more rigorous methods of selection have had to be introduced. They have resulted from a prolonged dialectic that has gone on in the professional committee and, since the policy of the Society is being made there, I think it will be of interest if I put down what I think one training analyst could contribute to policy and method, both of which are the concern of the Society as a whole.
