Who is the best psychiatrist in Toronto

Psychoanalysts. Biographical lexicon


The founding figures of Canadian psychoanalysis were shaped more by French and English influences than by North American psychoanalytic thinking, which later, however, particularly prevailed among English-speaking psychoanalysts in Canada. Rivalries between French-speaking Montreal and English-speaking Toronto have also played a role in the psychoanalytic movement. In Toronto in the 1970s and 1980s there was a heated argument between supporters of Heinz Kohut's self-psychology and Orthodox Freudians, but a split was avoided. The classical Freudian tendency remained the predominant one in the CPS / SCP. Against the trend towards medicine, psychoanalytically oriented psychologists of the Ontario Psychological Association founded their own institute, the Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis (TICP), in the late 1980s.
In addition to the aforementioned, the Canadian psychoanalyst Patrick J. Mahony, who devoted himself to the literary aspects of psychoanalysis, Jean Imbeault with his book became particularly well known Mouvemenents, Dominique Scarfone, founder of Trans, Roger Dufresne, who wrote the first bibliography of Freud's works, Julien Bigras, founder of Interpretation, and François Péraldi, who introduced Lacan's thinking to Québec.
