Patients consulting the clinical department of the Sigmund Freud Institute at Frankfurt are subjected to a short preliminary interview allowing a rough selection of those patients for whom a detailed diagnostic examination is proposed. According to this first appraisal, made with the help of the usual criteria for indication, this group should respond to psychoanalytic treatment. The detailed examination, however (by interviews, tests and group discussion), revealed that no more than 70 per cent of the selected patients were finally accepted for treatment, while the rest had to be referred for non-analytic forms of therapy outside the clinic. A sample of 65 patients was scrutinized for possible criteria determining their acceptance or referral. The first (accepted) group differed from the group of referred patients significantly

by the simultaneous presence of two criteria: sufficient motivation and strong pressure from suffering. The presence of only one of these criteria—however strong in itself—proved not sufficient for qualifying the patient for psychoanalytic treatment. It could further be shown that the special kind of relation existing between the two criteria exerts a specific influence determining the therapeutic method offered to the patient (long-term analysis, focal psychotherapy, group psychotherapy). This study helped to refine the technique used in the preliminary interviews.
