In contrast to Freud, Sullivan, like Fromm, radically delimits biological drives or instincts, and emphasizes instead the importance of interpersonal relations. This is `the antithesis of any document of human instincts' (Sullivan 1950: 302). Thus, for Sullivan as for Fromm, the aim of psychoanalysis is not to make the unconscious conscious in the traditional Freudian sense, but to help patients develop new ways of relating to others and the world around them. In contrast to the classical psychoanalytic emphasis on neutrality and objectivity, interpersonal psychoanalysis sees mutuality as crucial to the therapeutic process.
