This book, a record of the Clark Conference sponsored by the APA, consists of a series of papers on psychoanalytic education. The book is dedicated to the memory of Helen Block Lewis, who realized the necessity for detailed re-examination and further development of all ideas in psychoanalysis.
"The ideas discussed in this book offer heartening reassurance of the enduring value and evolving relevance of the psychoanalytic fundamentals elaborated by Freud at Clark University 80 years ago. All persons interested in psychoanalysis and its developments will find this book a stimulating sampler of proposals that assure the continued evolution of psychoanalysis…"
—Bulletin of the Menniger Clinic
"Readers of this book, hopefully not only psychologists but also members of other clinical professions, will find it useful because it will strengthenthe belief in the eternal integrative process, moving back and forth between the views of the past and the view of the future."
