Second Quarter, 1927

April 6, 1927. Miss Ellen M. Terry: A speech defect in a boy five years old. The case of a boy suffering from a powerful inhibition in talking coupled with tendencies towards phobias of running water, flies and dogs. He used in all only about ninety words, mainly for phantasy purposes. Weaning at four months constituted a traumatic event and on the oral level speech was held back through the equation speech-milk. The release of the words 'Mum' and 'Yes', as well as others, was shown as the direct result of analysis.

May 4 and May 18, 1927. Discussion on Child Analysis. Miss Barbara Low gave an abstract of Fraülein Anna Freud's book,Einführung in die Technik der Kinderanalyse. Dr. Eder, Dr. Edward Glover, Mrs. Klein, Mrs. Riviere, Miss Searl and Miss Sharpe took part in the discussion, but no abstract is given of their speeches because they are to appear in extenso in the Journal.

June 1, 1927. Dr. Ernest Jones related a case of obsessional neurosis in which the main symptom was a fear of losing æsthetic capacity. He discussed at some length the nature of the fear of making progress in the analysis, and the meaning of the desire for a complete cure before any progress should be made.

A discussion followed.

June 15, 1927. Dr. Ferenczi gave a Report of Instructional Work in Psycho-Analysis in America in 1926–27.

Abstract: The speaker first described the great general interest in psycho-analysis shown by public opinion in America, and thereupon gave the reasons which had prevented this interest from going deeper. He referred to the pioneer work done in America by Drs. Stanley Hall, T. T. Putnam and A. A. Brill. He did not find in official medical circles the same rigid opposition that we are familiar with in Europe, but rather a tendency to be satisfied with a superficial acquaintance with the subject, a sort of democratic feeling of the unassailability of his own person seeming to prevent people from submitting to the rule of being personally analysed. Adler's doctrines had a certain popularity in teaching circles, as had those of Jung amongst society women. A personal visit of Adler's disappointed scientific circles, however, on account of the narrowness of his views.
