Psychoanalytic training with its principal aspect, training analysis, has become an instrument of power politics within the psychoanalytic movement. The purpose of power politics justifies the means: training analysis is turned into a ritual of subjugation and used as a means of indoctrina-tion. This thesis is backed up with material coming from sources which are hard to find or hidden in different contexts. The historical process of transforming training analysis into an instrument of power for organized psychoanalysis is described. Freud, who first was involved in this develop-ment, later shared his criticism of training analysis with his daughter Anna, who wrote about this problem in 1938. Too late, however, to be able to influence the anti-psychoanalytic aspects of training analysis. After the description of the present situation, criticisms of training analysis based on many years of experience as a training analyst within the psychoanalytic institution are suggested. The task of promoting independent candidates which is assigned to training analysis is not performed; on the contrary, it brings forth proselytes, devoted analysts and members who are uncritical of the institution. Finally, some suggestions on how we can solve this problem are pre-sented.
