For sure, psychoanalysis has changed
over the years.
When Freud first began practicing psy-
choanalysis, his patients only reclined on
the couch for a few months; but over time,
the process has evolved into an indetermi-
nate length, a characteristic made fun of
in the 1973 Woody Allen movie Sleeper.
After Allen's character has been cryo-
genically frozen for 200 years, he says
upon awakening that if only he had been
up the entire time, he could be finished
with his analysis.
The stereotype of the silent, rigid
analyst, leaning back in his chair, pipe in
mouth, also is long gone.
"Freud was preoccupied with making
psychoanalysis a science,' says Bornstein,
who is being honored by MPI in
November."But old-school thinking has
been altered considerably. Today, there is
greater warmth and interaction between
the patient and analyst and a more caring
emphasis on the person who is suffering."

Holtzman believes psychoanalysis will
continue to evolve.
"As the only model of the mind that
encompasses a way for us to understand
and make sense of human mental com-
plexity, we can be assured that both as
a theory and as a method of treatment,
psychoanalysis is here to stay'
