AGUIAR, Fernando. Clinical Method: Clinical Method?. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2001, vol.14, n.3, pp. 609-616. ISSN 1678-7153.

This article resumes the notion of a clinical method in the context of French Clinical Psychology. Any historical examination of this context however includes its relationship with Psychoanalysis. The relationship between Clinical Psychology and Psychoanalysis, formulated in France in terms of a "Unit of Psychology", includes the notion of clinical method. Thus, having derived immanently from Psychoanalysis, the notion of clinical method has been contested and even distorted more than ever by methodological eclecticism and by the prevalence, in the worldwide Clinical Psychology, of experimental procedures.

Keywords : Clinical method; clinical psychology; psychoanalysis.
