Freud was a springboard for a lot of other theories, and psychoanalytic training isn't all about Freud. He did offer a lot of interesting ways to understand how people function... but I don't agree with all of it.
There's a lot to be said for considering how we react to our therapist, where that comes from, and how that carries over into our lives. It can give you a chance to see choices you might not have known that you had.
You just don't get an opportunity to explore your patterns of relating in other relationships.
My 2 cents. ;-)
On the other hand, you have different fingers.
