From the Couch to the Street: Applications of Psychoanalysis to Work with Individuals Who are Homeless and Mentally Ill

Alan D. Felix, M.D. and Pamela R. Wine

Current-day psychiatric treatment of severely disturbed populations tends to focus on the biological, behavioral, and social dimensions of rehabilitation. This paper addresses the relative neglect of the complex psychodynamic and interpersonal aspects of treatment of individuals who are homeless and mentally ill by presenting two clinical cases that are discussed from various psychoanalytic frames of reference.
