Do the Processes of Psychoanalytic Work Lead to Benefit? Studies by the APS Research Group and the Psychoanalytic Research Consortium

Sherwood Waldron, M.D., Francesco Gazzillo, Ph.D. and Karl Stukenberg, Ph.D.

There is a need for careful study of the relationships between the psychoanalytic/psychodynamic processes and their outcomes, yet the raw data to accomplish this study (i.e., psychoanalyses and psychoanalytic psychotherapies fully recorded and transcribed, and empirical instruments for assessing from an analytic perspective both the processes and results of these treatments) have been limited. Two related strategies to solve this deficit have been developed over the past 30 years by the Psychoanalytic Research Consortium (PRC): (1) the collection of an increasing database currently holding 31 fully recorded psychoanalyses and a number of long-term psychoanalytic psychotherapies safeguarded, confidentialized, and made available to the field; and (2) the development of new measures for assessing processes and outcomes of treatments from an analytic point of view, such as the Analytic Process Scales (APS), the Dynamic Interaction Scales (DIS), and the Personality Health Index (PHI) with RADIO categories. This article summarizes the history of the PRC and some of the findings of the research conducted with the APS, DIS, and PHI on the PRC cases.
