My main focus is my work doing psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. I also teach and supervise the next generation of therapists as a Professor at Northwestern University and a faculty member at the Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute. In my writing I do what is called psychobiography, looking at the lives of historical, literary, and political figure through a psychological lens. For 2017-2019 I am honored to serve as President of the Chicago Psychoanalytic Society.​

I made a serious effort to explain my approach on my website. Here is part of what I wrote: “During decades as a therapist, almost all my patients came to me because they were suffering from substantial pain and their lives were not working in significant ways. My goal, as may seem obvious, is for therapy to provide healing that lessens the pain and for our efforts together to result in a life that works better.” To read more, see my description at: jameswilliamanderson.wordpress.com/clinical​/
