This book is one of a series that record Donald Meltzer’s clinical seminars and supervisions, which were conducted in various countries on a regular basis over many years. Despite his interest in the theoretical advances of psychoanalysis made during what he termed The Kleinian Development, Meltzer believed that clinical supervision was the only way to teach psychoanalytic practice. In effect he treated supervision as an art form just as he regarded psychoanalysis as an art form. The library of his supervision work, almost all recorded outside the UK, thus forms a valuable teaching model for future practitioners, as well as demonstrating Meltzer’s wealth of insight into both character development and analytic technique.

Edited by Marisa Pelella Melega, with contributions by Alfredo Colucci, Celia Fix Korbivcher, Alicia Beatriz Dorado de Lisondo, Martha Maria de Moraes Ribeiro, and Paulo Cesar Sandler.

Reviews and Endorsements

‘We apprehended from these supervisions that the analyst’s job is of a primarily descriptive, rather than explanatory, nature, as the function of interpretation used to be considered. We do not explain anything; we simply give our opinions. As for dreams, Meltzer emphasised that the manifest content is not at all manifest: we cannot find out the meaning of any dream until we discover the symbolformation within it. This is comprised not only by its pictorial aspect but also by the language content which accompanies the dream and its description in the session. The authors of this book are unanimous in acknowledging Meltzer as a spontaneous thinker whose thinking embodies learning from experience. His generosity, his humour, and his life wisdom impressed all the people who worked with him in a highly positive way.’
- Marisa Pelella Melega, Training analyst, Brazilian Psychoanalytic Society of São Paulo
