Language, Communication, and Transference in Child Analysis I. Selective Mutism: The Medium Is the Message II. Is Child Analysis Really Analysis?

Judith A. Yanof

Is child analysis really analysis? The child patient does not free associate, communicates to the analyst in large measure nonverbally, and

operates from a different psychic organization than the adult. Nevertheless, child and adult analysis share the same basic principles, despite different techniques. Using clinical examples from Jeremy's analysis, I discuss how child analysis could benefit from greater use of analysis of transference and analysis of defense. I then discuss recent questions about the place of verbalization and interpretation in child analysis. This issue parallels polarities in adult theory concerning insight and relationship. Analysts should pay more attention to the similarities between child and adult analysis, so that information can be shared between both subspecialties.
