Burying Freud

[ Burying Freud Homepage | Freud's Seduction Theory Homepage ]

This is a rather strange posting. Dr. Goldberg states that psychoanalysis is dead as a therapy. Odd. I practice analysis and the great majority of my patients benefit greatly as a result of it. Many of my patients, as is the case for many analysts, have been through a number of other "therapies" including pharmacology and cognitive treatments. It is only the intensity of an analytic treatment that has provided them the opportunity to discover that which they have not known about themselves and which caused them great distress.

I think some humility is in order for Dr. Goldberg who evidently is not very knowledgeable about the process of and indications for psychoanalysis. A treatment that is even understood and recognized by the American Psychiatric Association in their Practice Guidelines.
