Summary "The struggle over the issue of "lay" or nonmedical analysis has divided the psychoanalytic world for practically the entire first century of psychoanalytic history - from 1910, when the issue first arose, until 1988, with the final settlement of a lawsuit brought against the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) and International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA) for their exclusionary practices regarding the training of nonphysicians for psychoanalytic work." "Lay Analysis: Life Inside the Controversy chronicles this history in absorbing detail."--Jacket
