IV Child Analysis

The Isolation and Loneliness of the Child Analyst

Benjamin Garber, M.D.


A series of recent meetings of the Child Analysis Committee of the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis were devoted to discussions of the various problems that beset child analysis in Chicago. Although some of the problems were deemed unique to the Chicago area, most of the issues were seen as confronting child analysis in this country and perhaps even the field of psychoanalysis as a whole. The issues touched on were external as well as internal; however, as psychoanalysts, it is our task to focus on what is within rather than without. One of the predominant impressions from those discussions is that child analysis has become relatively isolated from the adult-analytic community as well as from the community at large. This essay, then, is an attempt to delineate and to examine those dynamic issues that may contribute to the child analyst's sense of isolation.
