(p.25) Introduction to Part I Transnationalizing
After Freud Left
University of Chicago Press

Part I of this book describes Sigmund Freud's visit to America in 1909 and reviews how psychoanalytic practices and ideas spread in the four decades that followed, concentrating on practitioners, those who constituted the front ranks of the formal psychoanalytic movement. The process of transnationalizing is reported, of which the transfer of psychoanalysis to the United States is a spectacular historical example. The significance of local settings and events is shown, as is demonstrated by the transfer of local groups of practitioners from Europe to new localities in the United States in the face of Nazi persecution. Furthermore, it is observed that Freud's impact and legacy influenced the institutions of mental healing.

Keywords:   transnationalizing, Sigmund Freud, America, psychoanalysis, Clark University, Europe, mental healing, Nazi persecution
