Intuitive Processes in the Psychotherapy of Schizophrenics—Introduction

Frieda Fromm-Reichmann, M.D.

The papers presented in this panel are the outcome of one set of investigations in this research project.

The papers are based on the following procedure: Five staff members of the Chestnut Lodge Sanitarium got together for recorded weekly conferences of two hours' duration for a period of nine months. We listened to a part of one of the continuously recorded interviews which one of us had made with a schizophrenic patient whom we all knew. In conference we compared our reactions to the recorded material and to our own comments, in an effort to detect the sources of variations in our reactions, as they related to our differing life histories, personalities, life experiences, clinical experiences and relationships with the reporter. The study of this part of the project is still under investigation.

In our efforts to delineate the factors which promote or inhibit the analyst's intuitive awareness, it became clear that many of these factors have been grouped under headings other than intuition per se.
