This workshop presentation is devoted to an exploration of the therapeutic action of psychoanalysis when the analytic relationship is conceptualized as consisting of a trailing and a leading edge. Two different forms of therapeutic action will be identified: the transformation of existing structures and the development of new ones. It is Zimmerman’s claim that an understanding and awareness of these two dimensions of the analytic relationship greatly enhances our therapeutic efficacy as psychoanalysts.
Peter Zimmermann is the current president of the Training Institute of NPAP and a founding member of TRISP, the Training and Research in Intersubjective Self Psychology Institute in New York City. He has maintained an analytic and supervision practice in New York City since 1982.
