Where is COIRAG going? Where is psychoanalytic psychotherapy going? - The question in the title gives the author the opportunity to "take stock of" the state of psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy, as, from a statutory viewpoint, COIRAG belongs to this sphere, even though it mainly focuses on the various aspects of group analysis and research. The article points out how difficult it is to define current psychoanalytic psychotherapy as such, since, according to the author, it has not satisfactorily solved the incongruities that were present in Freud’s original theories. Thus, different orientations have emerged that are often intensified by such incongruities. Conflicting areas of psychotherapy where oppositions are created that - often - only make sense because they express irrelevant original theoretical defects are examined: for instance, the idea that "drive" is in contrast with "relation" or else the evaluation, or, on the contrary, the devaluation of Freudian metapsychology. Finally, the author identifies what can be allowed and developed in classical psychoanalytical tradition, presenting an outline of a practical-theoretical model for psychotherapy that he also points out as a prospect for COIRAG’s development. .
