Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Meetings of the New York Psychoanalytic Society

Victor H. Rosen


Dr. Glauber sorts from extensive data obtained from five analyses those which illuminate certain symptomatic inhibitions in the study and practice of medicine. Lewin states in the discussion that this is the first paper to direct itself specifically to what might be called the neurosis of doctors. The paper does not suggest, however, that an occupational disease is being delineated.

Reference is made to the contributions of Freud, Simmel, Rôheim, Nunberg, Brill and Lewin to the phylogenetic and ontogenetic roots of the transference and countertransference relationships of patients and physicians. Brill's paper on necrophilia affords illuminating case material which supplements some of Glauber's specific data.

Aside from studies of the countertransference in analysis, the analytic literature is surprisingly meager in clinical data concerning neurotic inhibitions in the study and practice of medicine.

The five cases include two medical students and three practicing physicians. Preoedipal fixations characterize the group and are the nuclei of their neurotic manifestations. Part-object identifications with the preoedipal mother and consequent inability to establish total object identifications were observed in these physician patients.
