Quick Reference

A course of psychoanalysis undergone by a student wishing to become an analyst. It was made obligatory at the Congress of the International Psycho-Analytical Association in 1922, although Sigmund Freud (1856–1939), the founder of psychoanalysis, believed that, for practical reasons, it could only be short and incomplete, and that its main objective should be to ensure that the student is suitable for further training (‘Analysis Terminable and Interminable’, 1937, Standard Edition, XXIII, pp. 216–53). Compare control analysis.
