Abstract: Since the 1990s many of the most innovative developments in psychoanalysis have taken place in the United States through the creative fusion between interpersonal analysis, intersubjectivity and British object relations known as the relational school. Increasingly, I find that relational and intersubjective models best express the changes that have taken place in my own practice arising out of the combination of British object relations, Kleinian and Jungian approaches that informed my analytic training. In this paper I will aim to trace these developments in analytic theory and practice through my personal trajectory as an analyst over the past 20 years, with a particular focus on the values that underpin relational psychotherapy.
Warren Colman is a Training Analyst of the Society of Analytical Psychology and, until recently, the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Analytical Psychology. He worked as a couples psychotherapist at the Tavistock Marital Studies Institute (now TCCR) from 1982-1997 within a tradition that combined British object relations and developmental Jungian thinking. He now works in full-time private practice and lectures and supervises internationally. He has published almost 40 papers on a range of topics – couples interaction, sexuality and gender, the self, the therapeutic process, and symbolic imagination.
