Psyche. XXVI, 1972: Results of Psychoanalytically Oriented Short-Term Therapy with Thirty Psychosomatic Patients. Dieter Beck and Louis Lambelet. Pp. 265-285.

Thirty patients who had received psychoanalytically oriented short-term therapy for chronic psychosomatic disorders were re-examined in a follow-up study to determine the efficacy of the treatment modality. Of the thirty patients treated, six were found to have been cured, fourteen had improved, and ten had shown no improvement. The following conclusions were drawn from the study: 1, chronic symptoms of many years' standing are responsive to treatment; 2, good initial rapport between therapist and patient does not guarantee successful outcome of therapy; and 3, serious transference conflicts handicap the treatment. The major goal of short-term therapy is to enable the patient to find more ego-syntonic solutions to reality problems. Work on the 'focus', however, did not seem as decisive for the outcome of treatment as had been expected. It was found, too, that even short-term therapy must be of long enough duration to allow sufficient time for repeated working through and for the integration of new solutions.
