Richard Reichbart, JD, PhD, is a training and supervising psychoanalyst. For thirty five years, he has maintained a private practice for the treatment of adults, adolescents and children in Northern New Jersey. In addition, he is a short story writer, a parapsychologist, and a poet. He is author of The Paranormal Surrounds Us: Psychic Phenomena in Literature, Culture, and Psychoanalysis. Prior to his career in psychology, he worked as an attorney focusing on civil rights and native American issues.

Here he describes how he was introduced to parapsychology as a result of becoming a psychoanalytic patient of Jule Eisenbud. He describes how Eisenbud became a persona non grata within the psychoanalytic community as a result of his research in “thoughtography” with Ted Serios. He also describes Freud’s ambivalent attitude toward the paranormal. He points out, however, that telepathic experiences are rather common within the intimacy of psychoanalytic sessions.
