We work in the dark – we do what we can – we give what we have.
Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task.
The rest is the madness of art.
-Henry James (1893)

Understanding the nature of the analytic relationship and how to facilitate enduring personal growth, particularly in patients considered “difficult,” has been central to Philip Bromberg’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 don’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 —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-based—that it is organized more by perception than by cognition—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.
