Euphoric Reactions in the Course of Psychoanalytic Treatment: B. Mittelmann. Psa. Rev., XXVII, 1940, pp. 27–44.

Kurt Eissler

A transient, mild, euphoric reaction characterized by elation, exaltation, hopefulness, talkativeness, increased activity and appetite, without flight of ideas but with concomitant awareness of anxiety is observed occasionally in the course of psychoanalytic treatment.

Three euphoric reactions during the analysis of a woman, aged 28, treated for attacks of anxiety, homosexuality and various disturbances in social relationships, are discussed in detail. They occurred when the patient successfully worked on an essential problem, but still used a pathological device. They were 'attempts by the patient to enable herself to function in various situations in a manner she had not been able to heretofore'.

The author limits his investigation mainly to the patient's present situation, giving particular emphasis to the patient's attitude towards the analyst. He applies the concepts of Karen Horney to this problem.
