Understanding the nature of the analytic relationship and how to facilitate enduring personal growth, particularly in patients considered â€œdifficult,â€ has been central to Philip Brombergâ€™s interest for many years. In his clinical explorations of what makes psychoanalysis therapeutic and what hinders it, he has developed the clinical implications of working with dissociative processes as a major factor in accounting for why patients improve and why they donâ€™t.
His writing has become a major factor in the growth of what some argue is a paradigm shift in accounting for the therapeutic action of psychoanalysis â€”toward a view of it being shaped by what takes place in the relationship between the two people called patient and therapist. As you will hear today, Dr. Bromberg presents a view that therapeutic growth is process-basedâ€”that it is organized more by perception than by cognitionâ€”and that when the relationship is creative, it leads to the co-creation of a space in which self and other can exist without sacrificing individuality and to a spirit where new and spontaneously fresh ways of thinking and being can best emerge.
