Psychoanalysis Online 3: The Teleanalytic Setting is a highly topical, continuing conversation on the role of technology in psychoanalysis and its tremendous potential for outreach to patients in the global economy. It describes the essentials of a framework for teleanalysis that is secure in terms both of technology and ethical stance. The technology is a third in the therapeutic alliance and its impact needs to be analysed like every other element in the field.

Teleanalysis appears to some people to be a distancing methodology but the authors report surprising closeness across a distance. Teleanalysis offers a window into the analytic pair’s experience of time, space, deprivation, fantasy, and physicality and shows unconscious dynamics displayed graphically on the image on the screen. The book looks at the convenience and impact of internet use among various communities including LGBTQI in terms of defense against and transition to intimacy, and gives clinical evidence of transformation made possible through the therapeutic aspects of technology.

Reviews and Endorsements

‘Innovations and adaptations of the psychoanalytic approach invariably arouse anxiety and can fuel prejudices. This excellent collection of papers by analysts who have used mediated psychotherapy and psychoanalysis provides a balanced perspective on the risks and opportunities afforded by teleanalysis. It is an essential companion for psychoanalytic clinicians working today.’
- Professor Alessandra Lemma, consultant, Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, visiting professor, University College London and Essex University, and author of The Digital Age on the Couch

‘Jill Savege Scharff once again shines the spotlight on psychoanalysis in our digital age. She gathers an international array of talented clinicians who explore practical, theoretical and clinical considerations in using new technologies to expand the range of psychoanalytic treatment. Necessary reading for any twenty first century therapist.’
- Dan Jacobs, MD, training and supervising analyst, Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, and chair of APsaA Teleanalysis Group
