The American Psycho-Analytic Association—(American Federation of the Psycho-Analytic Societies)

Ernest E. Hadley, M.D.

The thirty-sixth meeting of the American Psycho-Analytic Association was held at the New Hotel Jefferson, St. Louis, Missouri, on May 6 and 7, 1936.

On Wednesday, May 6, the anniversary of Professor Freud's eightieth birthday, there was a Joint Session in the morning with the Section on Psycho-Analysis and the American Psychiatric Association. Dr. Richard H. Hutchings, President of the Section on Psycho-Analysis of the American Psychiatric Association, presided.

The scientific programme was introduced with an address on the occasion of the anniversary of the eightieth birthday of Professor Freud, entitled, 'Freud, His Work and Influence, ' by Clarence P. Oberndorf, M.D., of New York City, President of the American Psycho-Analytic Association.

The following scientific papers were presented:

'The Treatment of the Psychotic Ego', by Lewis B. Hill, M.D. (Baltimore, Maryland). The psychotic patient has lost ability to enjoy friendly relationships. Consequently the motive for efforts toward recovery, i.e. the expectation of pleasure-producing experience, is absent. Treatment in the circumstances must amount to management of the situation to the end that the patient experiences a treat, i.e. receives psychologic food and drink.

'Application of Psycho-Analytical Concepts in Psychotherapy': Report of Clinical Trials in a Mental Hygiene Service, by Robert P. Knight, M.D. (Topeka, Kansas). The author has been in charge of a Mental Hygiene Consultation Service in a Psychiatric Clinic for the past several years and on the basis of experience in treating various types of clinical psychiatric problems of varying degrees of severity, the attempt is here made to illustrate the use of psycho-analytic concepts and modified psycho-analytic methods in understanding and treating such cases.

'Remnants of Reality-Testing in Dreams', by Thomas M. French, M.D. (Chicago, Illinois). An attempt to give definite formulation to the familiar fact that dreams often presage the attempts of a patient to discriminate between his infantile patterns and actual situations.

'Neuroses and Anti-Social Behaviour', by Gregory Zilboorg, M.D. (New York City). The general concept of neuroses as a pathological escape from anti-social impulses is reviewed.
