Japan Report on Psycho-Analytic Activities in the Year 1933


During the year 1933 patients received for analysis at my analytical rooms in the city and at home numbered twenty-three, in addition to about an equal number of consultations. The numbers of analytic hours amounted in the aggregate to 1, 431, an average of 63.2 sessions per person. Among the subjects of consultation were a good many cases of character anomalies of children and young people, whose parents were very much troubled on account of their young dependents' inclinations, and were anxious to find a way for their better guidance. Of the twenty-three patients treated there were seven obsessional neuroses, five borderland cases, namely, manic-depressive or early phases of schizophrenia, one manic-depressive whose chief content was a 'foster-parent's' phantasy (but with little projection, therefore not paranoia), three anxiety-neuroses, one of whom shewed a trace of agoraphobia, another compulsive perspiration on the face, appearing after the symptoms of erythrophobia had disappeared, one conversion-hysteria (woman), one homosexual, and six character anomalies of youth. Eleven out of the twenty-three patients are still to continue analysis for the next year. As to the rest, four patients left without cure, as they interrupted analysis after a few sessions, others partly cured, two completely. A marked success is being achieved in the case of the manic-depressive with a 'foster-parent's' content mentioned above, a young man of twenty-seven years of age, whose analysis including repetitive abreactions during the manic phase covered some 400 sessions. He is still to continue analysis for clearing the remaining symptoms, consisting chiefly of those of obsessional and anxiety attacks and guilt feeling.
