Ego psychology in Britain[edit]

I see my edit was reverted that removed the claim that the predominant school of psychoanalysis in Britain is ego psychology. The request is for sources to justify my edit. I note that 1) there isn't a source for the original claim, 2) the claim is false for Britain (but true for the US) e.g. "the diversity in theoretical thinking that dominates the British psychoanalytic scene stands in contrast to the stronghold of ego psychology in North America for many years." From Introduction to the Practice of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy by Alessandra Lemma, 3) It seems odd to be making claims about British and American psychoanalysis in the section on Lacan which is sourced for stuff about Lacan, who isn't an influential psychoanalyst in the US or Britain - I would remove the claim altogether or find a way to characterise British and American psychoanalysis that isn't false.

Since the original claim is unsourced, I would be pro, as you suggest, simply removing it until such time as either claim (for the US or UK) can be backed up with a source Itsfini (talk) 16:17, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
