All psychoanalysis is local

Dr. Douglas Kirsner

Often psychoanalysts cluster locally around leaders and schools of thought. Too often also, local situations can trap creativity by being closed political hothouses. Changes of psychoanalytic technique, such as the move from relative informality through to the 'blank screen' developed in relation to specific conditions in New York and the USA. Ultimately, a field can grow from an open system in which individuals from a rich diversity of backgrounds and cultures carry out the work, and who are not stymied through parochial domination, but encouraged in their creativity. This implies fostering local and national flourishing in both the new and established territories of psychoanalysis.
