I.H. Paul's Letters to Simon - The Reluctant Psychoanalyst Reads a Professional Classic
Recently there was a meeting at my institute between various faculty members and a group of young, enthusiastic psychiatric residents and psychology graduate students. The topic was: How should the students learn about psychoanalytic approaches to treating clients/patients? We thought about various things that had worked in the past: analysts presenting their cases or teaching classes about basic psychoanalytic concepts, but when someone suggested a book club, the energy in the room picked up. And then, as we discussed various books that we could read, it was clear that there was a special place in the hearts of the analysts for a book by I.H. Paul (1973): Letters to Simon.
