    Attachment of both Analyst and Analysand: Match and Analytic Outcome in Chinese IPA Candidate Analysts and their Analysands

    "Attachment of both Analyst and Analysand: Match and Analytic Outcome in Chinese IPA Candidate Analysts and their Analysands" with Yikun Wu, Ph.D., Jun Tong, M.D. and Nathan Szajnberg, M.D.

    This is a study of psychoanalytic treatment outcome using attachment as a measure of analyst/analysand match: to what degree this is a factor that predicts outcome at one year and beyond. This proposal suggests honing down to a specific factor in “match”: the relationship between analyst’s attachment working model and the analysand’s. As a pilot study, we aim to study and clarify empirically what attachment types of analysts/analysands could be matched or mismatched relationship, and possible features of matched or mismatched dyads.
