This is a focused article on clinical interpretation in the light of psychoanalytic theory. See Interpretation for a general discussion and interpretation in psychotherapy for the broader clinical application of other theoretical frameworks.

A psychoanalytic interpretation is the offering of a meaning of a patients therapeutic material in the light of psychoanalytic theory. Such interpretations are also made to illuminate commentary on art, literature, historical biography, anthropological research and a wide variety of other cultural fields.
