How psychoanalyst works



The article provides a detailed course of long-term psychoanalytic therapy, with spe-cial attention to the detailes of the analyst's state and settings. The author illustrates the various work plans - analysis of transference and countertransference, interpreta-tion of dreams and fantasies etc. The Author doesn't propose external conceptualiza-tions of therapy and not setting a discussion of theoretical problems: He rather fol-lows the strategy of demonstrating the very fabric of the work process, leaving the reader to ponder interesting facts and formulate questions and interpretation.
