A Case Showing Some Implications of Short Therapy: Charles Berg. Brit. J. of Med. Psychology, XX, 1944, pp. 1–19.

Victor Calef

Berg justifies symptom analysis under war time exigencies. He describes a patient who came for treatment during the last war, and records excerpts from the psychoanalytic interviews showing the vicissitudes in the patient's treatment and 'cure' in a short term, psychoanalytically oriented, therapy. He describes the probable psychopathology, demonstrating that part of his insight which was used in making interpretations to the patient and that which was left out of direct interpretation. The limitations of the deductions and the results obtained are pointed out. Transference resistances were avoided as much as possible and no effort was made to analyze them. The 'cure' is recognized as a transference cure. Berg says, 'short therapy must unfortunately always be synonymous with incomplete treatment. The degree of incompleteness may vary between the stage of transference regression to anxiety free babyhood and the stage of transference regression to a growing boy's rebellion against being forced to play the feminine rôle to his father's or mother's masculinity.'
