Biography

Herbert "Harry" Stack Sullivan was an American psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.

Approaching the psychoanalysis, created the interpersonal school of psychiatry. He has worked with other well-known American psychoanalysts, such as Clara Thompson, Karen Horney, Erich Fromm, Erik H. Erikson and Frieda Fromm-Reichmann.

Sullivan posits that all behavior is the sum of the various motivations that affect every person in a specific time. The sense of choice is a reflection in the consciousness of the convergence of various reasons that lead back to the needs of satisfaction and security.

He was a founder of the William Alanson White Institute, a leading U.S. psychoanalytic institutes, and the journal Psychiatry. He directed the Washington School of Psychiatry from 1936 to 1947.

His contribution on the clinical interview techniques, outlined an approach less nosographic and more interpersonal than classical models, has had much influence in American psychiatry of the '40s and '50s. In its approach, the interview becomes a tool not only medical history, but also to analyze the relationship dynamics used by the subject, and of which he is not sufficiently aware. Overcoming these "selective inattention" against its own relational processes thus becomes part of the therapeutic process.

Among his major contributions have had a significant importance to schizophrenia attempts to extend the forms of psychoanalytic treatment, management of psychiatric wards based on relational processes and not only authoritative, reflection on communication parataxic (or influenced by representations of the previous 'other), and analysis of the centrality of forms of interpersonal interaction in the construction and maintenance of psychological and psychiatric disorders, from this point of view, his lecture was important for the subsequent development of systemic school, in some verses, the relational and intersubjective psychoanalysis.
