Psychoanalytic Treatment of ADHD Children in the Frame of Two Extraclinical Studies: The Frankfurt Prevention Study and the EVA Study

Marianne Leuzinger-Bohleber, Ph.D., Katrin Luise Laezer, Ph.D., Nicole Pfenning-Meerkoetter, Tamara Fischmann, Ph.D., Angelika Wolff and Jonathan Green, M.D.

We are pleased that psychoanalytic therapy with so-called “ADHD-children” has been elected as subject of this journal. As we have discussed at length in a previous article, psychoanalysts in the last few years have been increasingly engaged in a heated discussion about ADHD (Leuzinger-Bohleber and Fischmann, 2010). As many of the contributions in this volume deal with psychoanalytic conceptualizations of the genesis, psychodynamics, and interdisciplinary approaches of ADHD, we will limit our contribution to the depiction of our attempts to provide psychoanalytic treatments — within the framework of divers prevention-programs — for “children at risk” in kindergarten. Children involved here also comprise those showing a preform of ADHD. The focus of this article is on psychoanalytic treatments of these children in the frame of two large extraclinical studies. Therefore, we will only briefly delineate our motivation to engage together with our colleagues of the Institute for Psychoanalytical Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy (IAKJP) in the endeavor of such early prevention projects. Subsequently the design, some results, and the exemplary supervision- and therapy-experiences with “ADHD children” in the Frankfurt Prevention Study and of the thereupon developed and still ongoing EVA Study will be summarized. We conclude with a short outlook.
