'Constant Elements in Psycho-Therapy.': C. P. Oberndorf.

Sylvan Keiser

Psychoanalytic Quarterly, 1946, Vol. XV, No. 4, p. 435.

The author presents five clinical elements upon which the efficacy of treatment depends. They are: (1) Who undertakes to perform it; (2) what is said or done; (3) the time when it is undertaken; (4) how (and even where) it is done or said; and finally (5) the susceptibility of the person upon whom the therapy is practised. The agent effecting the treatment is accorded the response originally given to the mother who gave love and reassurance. The effect of transference and its producing longstanding cures is described for two patients. The proper timing of the giving of an interpretation is as important as its accuracy, and as a corollary to this is the patient's readiness to change his intrapsyche situation.
