I call the model of psychoanalytic field theory that is based on the work of North American psychoanalysts the plasmic model. The underlying heuristic principles of each of these models will be discussed in the course of this and the following chapters. There were several relatively independent strands of the emerging psychoanalytic formulations and reformulations in this period. It was a complex period that defies a linear description. This chapter and the subsequent chapter cannot provide an in-depth discussion of each thread of the psychoanalytic developments in this period; such a discussion would in itself fill a substantial volume.

In the model of Baranger and Baranger, the principal object of interest and observation within a therapeutic process is the analytic field. Because the field is the object of study, while there are two individuals involved in an analytic process, each participant is understood as constituted by the process within the field. Neither member of the analytic couple can be understood without the other. Both are immersed in the process of the field. Unlike the structural psychoanalytic model, and as will be seen in Chapter 4, similar to other North American psychoanalytic models from the first wave, here each analytic couple and each analytic process is understood as unique.

See Corel (2013) for a discussion of the psychoanalytic culture that Baranger and Baranger found upon their immigration in 1947. Evidence of intercontinental influences can be seen in a list of some of the psychoanalysts who were there at the Overview of psychoanalytic field theory 17 time: Ángel Garma, an analysand of Theodor Reik; Celes Cárcamo, an analysand of Paul Schiff; Marie Langer, an analysand of Richard Sterba; Enrique Pichón-Rivière; Arnaldo Rascovsky; G. Ferrari Hardoy; José Bleger; and Heinrich Racker.
