Psychoanalysis sessions – Introduction

Each of the various cases involves three phases:
-The session with the patient.
-The formulation of the diagnosis.
-The proposal of therapy.

The first phase is the crucial one, because it provides the data for the second, which in turn will allow us to formulate a therapy depending on how many correct deductions we will be able to make.
To get the perfect case solution it is therefore necessary to pay the utmost attention from the first phase.
In the therapy session we will have to decide which line of investigation to take. The order of the questions is also important as some of them should only be asked when the patient’s level of confidence is high enough. The amount of money paid by the patient at the end of the session will tell us how good the session was. Only with 50 shillings will we have the certainty of having obtained all the data.
In the data interpretation phase we will have to choose which meaning to give to the patient’s words and establish the type of disorder from which he is affected (hysteria, neurosis, …)
In the third phase, the amount of treatment options available will reveal to us how good our conduct was during the case. Not having therapeutic proposals or having only one will mean a total failure in resolving the case. Having two will mean you have made some mistakes. With three we will be sure that we have helped the patient but not that we have revealed every secret about him. Only in this way, and also by giving the right therapy, will we achieve the perfect analysis, visible in the ending.
