In some respects, the forwarded message from Dr. I. Goldberg is not worth responding to
on this discussion list. The usefulness of psychoanalysis as a therapy is an empirical
question: some people practice it, some find it useful. To suggest it is dead because it
remains marginal does not make sense to me. The theory, also marginal, is alive and well.
I would suggest that "those who care for people with psychiatric disorders"
might do better to heed the social critique offered by psychoanalysts so they might have
something more than drugs to offer them.
