WHAT ARE THE APPLICATIONS OF DIRECT PSYCHOANALYSIS IN MENTAL HEALTH?
John N. Rosensays,” We have found this method of therapy most useful with peopleclassified as psychotic. It is especially useful in depressives who have already made a suicidal attempt or where the possibility of suicide is present. Obviously, as a precaution, the patient must be guarded twenty-four hours a day or he may very well be lost. The treatment unit is best suited for thisprotection.
Direct Psychoanalysis can do nothing for a patient who has been lobotomized. The more a patient has been subjected to shock therapy or,to a lesser degree,drug therapy and hospitalization,the more guarded the prognosis becomes. Neurotic patients, particularly those with anxietyhysteria, are the easiest to treat. We have found that hysterics, agoraphobics, claustrophobics, and various forms of psychosomatic fixations are sometimes quickly resolved.”
