About this item

The outcomes of psychoanalysis, as with other psychotherapies, vary considerably. This book examines the results of a longitudinal study of change during psychoanalysis, illuminating the characteristics of patients, analysts and analyses which can help to predict outcomes of treatment. Chapters draw upon sixty case studies to consider how patients with very different analytic outcomes respond at both the beginning and end of their analysis, in turn improving treatment planning and practice for the well-being of other patients.

Chapters explore five outcomes: a negative therapeutic reaction, attrition when the patient drops out, attrition due to external events, mutual agreement between patient and analyst without maximum benefits, and mutual agreement between patient and analyst with maximum benefits.
