SANCHEZ-BARRANCO RUIZ, Antonio; SANCHEZ-BARRANCO VALLEJO, Pablo  and  BALBUENA RIVERA, Francisco. Non-medical analisis: no longer a controversy?. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2002, n.82, pp.89-102. ISSN 2340-2733.

In this paper we try to scope an historical reconstruction of the debate, which turned into a bitter confrontation on regard of lay analysis between the North American and the European psychoanalytic schools from the mid 20s through the 40s of the past century in which Theodor Reik played a central role. Nevertheless, with the incorporation of psychology to the academic institutions and the arrival of other forms of psychotherapy, the question about the lay analysis began to be heldin a more open manner, allowing the nonmedical doctors to progressively incorporate into the psychotherapy practice.

Keywords : Non-medical Analysis; Lay Analysis; Historical Controversy; Reik.
