Another Crack at the Problem of Technique: A Guide to the Perplexed; or, It Takes One to Know One

Technique is an issue that, while central to the practicing clinician, is treated implicitly in most training programs. It is assumed that theories provide adequate guidance for clinical practice and that continuous case seminars supplement this while supervision adds the direct “hands-on” details of implementation. In fact this is highly questionable. Details of process suggest that in fact most analyst behavior does not obviously flow from the consciously held model and cannot be seen to derive from it. What could then be the basis that orients analysts in their stances vis a vis the analysand? What is the basis of technique and how could technique be studied and then developed?
