History of psychoanalysis
Psychoanalytic training

A training analysis is a psychoanalysis undergone by a candidate (usually a physician with specialty in psychiatry) as a part of her/his training to be a psychoanalyst; the (senior) psychoanalyst who performs such an analysis is called a training analyst. A training analysis is different both from a psychoanalysis performed for the "therapeutic treatment of a patient"[1] and from psychoanalytic psychotherapy. A training analysis is also different from psychoanalysis performed by the psychoanalyst-in-training on a patient and supervised by a supervising analyst. A candidate in training typically analyzes a number of patients, each for three or four years. In the USA, the latter analysis may be offered to the public as "low fee analysis" in the various psychoanalytic institutes affiliated with the American Psychoanalytic Association.
