“Sigmund Freud” © Bette Blank, 2008, Artistic Narratives
“One is not a psychoanalyst, one becomes a psychoanalyst. In the same way that I think you are not a father or a mother, but you become a father or a mother.  It is a long process and an important commitment.”
—Virginia Ungar, President of the International Psychoanalytic Association
