Spreading the Psychoanalytic Word:
Fellowship Committee

by Prudence Leib, MD

The fellowship committee would like to compile a reading list on psychoanalysis to distribute to our fellows and applicants. What I have in mind is a list separated by category and/or topic: classic articles in analysis, the essential Freud, child analysis, object relations, ego psychology, self psychology, transference, supervision, etc, etc. Also, I’d like to be able to give them a list of "cutting edge" articles to show them where psychoanalytic theory is struggling today. Hoping not to reinvent the wheel, I’d be most appreciative if anyone could send me a copy of any topical reading list you have developed for a course (a list covering a single topic would be fine--I’ll put them together). The audience here is non-analysts, psychiatry residents and early career psychiatrists, social workers and psychologists. So as not to overburden e-mail do send the lists by surface mail to: 1000 Skokie Blvd., Suite 265, Wilmette, IL 60091. Or e-mail to me if you wish.
