The Work of the Psychoanalyst: Reflections on Countertransference with Institutionalized Youth Patients

Ruth Axelrod Praes, Ph.D., Benny Weiss Steider, Ph.D. and Juan Azar Andere

In this work, we briefly describe present-day, postmodern evolution of the family and the attention centers that both the government and the private sector have established when this fails. The birth of child psychoanalysis and its application in one of those centers, forging roots for further psychoanalytic development, is briefly described. The importance of countertransference and analyst supervision for those treating traumatized patients left without a family is discussed, as is an institution that altruistically rescues these children; the function of a psychoanalyst and his/her avatars is shown by way of three clinical cases when a strong countertransference obviously occurred in him/her. Finally, reflections are made about the importance of handling countertransference with the analyst’s supervisor.
