What is it about?

This paper shows a theoretical and clinical scope on videoconference psychoanalysis. It elaborates on the idea that teleanalysis may or may not be a suitable condition for a therapeutic dyand depending on the capacity of the dyad to overcome the split that dismantles the unity of the analytic experience (a here-now-with me experience). It also shows several ways in which this spit and its derivatives are observed throughout clinical experiences, with both positive and negative outcomes.

Why is it important?

Unlike previous approaches, this paper defends the idea that videoconference teleanalysis may and may not work under certain conditions that do not rely upon material conditions or diagnostic criteria, but upon specific clinical conditions of the analytical process.
