Summary

Many analysts around the world have found themselves in a situation of continuing (or even beginning) psychoanalytic treatment from a distance - either by telephone or other means of communication. No one has found the courage, however, to recognize this as a formal method, as Ricardo Carlino does in this brave, honest, and rigorous book. Freud's ingenious structure of the couch and chair was considered to be the only suitable format for more than one hundred years. Carlino's lucid book takes into account the changes that have taken place in our daily lives, as the result of the resounding technological changes that have influenced our means of communication. Carlino has had the courage to assimilate the changes that have come about in the modern world and argues that Freud's psychoanalytic method can continue to be applied in this new setting. The analytic system, with a patient freely associating his/her occurrences, together with an analyst who listens in silence and communicates his/her interpretation, has remained unaltered.
