Reports of the Branch Societies

J. K. Abraham


For a long time a need has made itself felt for closer connexion to be established between the adherents of psycho-analysis who are scattered throughout the different parts of Germany. The International Psycho-Analytical Congress, held at Salzburg in April, 1924, provided an opportunity for those members who came from Germany to come to some decision on this matter. It was decided to hold a Meeting in the autumn of this year, 1924, partly in order that the members of the Association and those adherents of our science who are not members might become better acquainted with one another, and partly to provide a suitable opportunity to those who are interested and wish to learn something of psycho-analytical methods. Dr. Landauer (Frankfort) and Dr. Abraham were asked to undertake the arrangements.

The Meeting took place at Würzburg on October 11 and 12. All who attended—the total number of persons being forty-eight—stayed at the Schwan Hotel, where the proceedings took place.

After the opening formalities at the first meeting, a number of papers were read. Dozent Dr. F. Deutsch (Vienna) spoke on the subject of the body in health and sickness from the psycho-analytical point of view. He gave a survey of psycho-analytical findings with regard to the influence of the unconscious on the body.

Dr. K. Landauer (Frankfort) spoke on 'Equivalents for Grief'. He showed that a number of conversion-symptoms are, in the realm of nervous disturbances, the bodily equivalents of the affect of grief.

In a paper entitled 'From the Analysis of an Obsessional Neurosis in a Six-year-old Child', Frau M. Klein (Berlin) traced the pathological manifestations to the child's abnormal instinctual life, and threw some light on the technique and results of the treatment.
