Transference Neurosis in Patients with Psychosomatic Disorders

Melitta Sperling, M.D.


This paper deals with the techniques for the establishment, management, and resolution of an analyzable transference in the treatment of patients suffering from psychosomatic diseases. Clinical material is presented to demonstrate that psychosomatic patients are accessible to psychoanalytic treatment and capable of developing a transference neurosis, if a skilful psychoanalytic technique is used and parameters such as the anaclitic type of treatment are avoided.
