Adolescent Psychiatry. XIII, 1986: Focal Analysis of a College Freshman. David Dean Brockman. Pp. 139-163.

Marianne Makman

Brockman presents a rather detailed description of a traditionally conducted six-month analysis of a well-functioning, strongly motivated, intellectual young man in acute neurotic distress. A thoughtful discussion follows, both of the psychodynamics of the case and of the questions raised by the uncharacteristically short successful analysis, e.g., was this a transference cure, a corrective emotional experience, a cognitive exercise? The author believes the treatment genuinely effected consolidation of personality by freeing up arrested adolescent development through unmodified analytic technique. He clearly concludes that such technique can be helpful in certain cases, even if abbreviated by moves and circumstantial changes common in the lives of people of college age.
