Where is the data to measure the pressure of the 'paranoid atmosphere' that Kernberg was talking about?
Is there any ‘value guided living atmosphere’ in acceptance and commitment therapy institutes?
I forgot his name but there was a political scientist wrote about history of psychoanalysis. I don’t like psychoanalytic language being used to criticize groups or living people. People becoming paranoids, narcissistically gratifying themselves as if the writer is not human.
“Ferenczi sought to understand the analyst’s own role in the therapeutic process; he thought that the analysis of the patient entailed also the analysis of the analyst. (Ferenczi was going well beyond the formal requirement that all analysts be themselves analyzed.) Ferenczi was critical of the Berlin school of thinking, which followed Karl Abraham’s over-concentration on abstract theory.”

He should not have envied Klein too.
It is probably my own projection because I love Mrs Klein very much.
