Educational Objectives

After attending this meeting, participants should be able to recognize one of the less conspicuous hardships patients are exposed to in the analytic process. Analysts will be reminded that a non-directive therapy is an active interference with normal conversation. We will consider the possibility that it fosters not just time travel, but an unsettling disruption in the experience of time. That consideration also offers another view of some familiar phenomena, such as social construction of reality, enactment, the hermeneutics of interventions, and the general action of psychoanalytic treatment.


Psychoanalysis deals with the personhood of patients. A person is a blend of animal and historical natures. By interfering with patients’ actions, the Freudian analyst dissects the two kinds of time that are associated with these two aspects, even as he participates in their reweaving.
