Psychotherapy of an Adolescent Catatonic Schizophrenia with Mutism. A Study in Empathy and Establishing Contact: Robert P. Knight. Psychiatry, IX, 1946, pp. 323–339.

S. Gabe

This is a case report of an acute catatonic schizophrenic episode treated successfully by psychotherapy. The treatment resulted in clinical recovery with insight into the emotional conflicts that precipitated the illness. Knight describes in detail his technique for breaking through the catatonic shell and establishing an effective transference relationship. The factors of empathy, optimism and active firmness, in addition to the usual armamentarium of the psychoanalyst, are stressed as essential to success in treating catatonic patients.
