Three Approaches to Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Aotearoa New Zealand
This paper discusses three styles of psychoanalytic psychotherapy commonly practiced in Aotearoa New Zealand. Judi Blumenfeld Hoadley writes on object relations, Gustavo Restivo on the Lacanian orientation, and Sarah Calvert on relational psychoanalysis and the relational movement. Each author discusses their specific orientation towards psychoanalytic psychotherapy in terms of the historical origins, seminal theorists, and philosophical views. They also articulate the key theoretical concepts, clinical techniques, and unique links to the therapeutic relationship. Finally, the authors point out the specific organisations, training, and conferences available in Aotearoa New Zealand.
