THERAPEUTIC ACTION:
CONTEMPORARY THINKING ABOUT WHY WE DO WHAT WE
DO

“…the soul of analytic technique is to free analyst and patient from the normal social constraints and so favor
development of the inner world.” Neville Symington, 1983

What do we mean by therapeutic action and what are the theoretical constructs and clinical applications that
help us deepen our clinical work? Freud’s psychoanalysis was a “one-person psychology” that privileged the
patient’s insight delivered through the authority of the analyst. His belief that “cure,” achieved through the
uncovering of early unconscious repressed experiences, would “free” the patient from earlier developmental
stages of fixation. As ideas developed by Klein and her followers, Bion and the British Middle School concerning
“what worked’ evolved, an exploration of what happens in and between the minds of the patient and analyst
became critical to understanding analytic process. Contemporary analytic thinkers consider affective relatedness
crucial for therapeutic growth, as it is analyst’s receptivity, openness, and ability to interpret unconscious
processes that facilitates therapeutic action.
