Symbolic Realization. A New Method of Psychotherapy Applied to a Case of Schizophrenia: By M. A. Sechehaye. New York: International Universities Press, Inc., 1951. 184 pp.

Review by:
Frieda Fromm-Reichmann

Mme. Sechehaye's account of 'a new method of psychotherapy applied to a case of schizophrenia' furnishes confirmation of the knowledge of those psychiatrists who have applied modified psychoanalytic methods in the treatment of schizophrenics for the past thirty years. It also offers a source of new insight and conviction to those who have remained sceptical with regard to the possibilities of treating psychotic schizophrenics by intensive psychotherapy. Mme. Sechehaye's experience with her patient proves that the meaning of verbalized and nonverbalized schizophrenic reactions can be understood on the basis of psychoanalytic knowledge of the unconscious and its expression as manifested in dreams and, equally impressively, in psychotic productions.

This work also shows that active and spontaneous responses in word and action to the productions of the schizophrenic patient are much more effective in the lengthy adventure of psychoanalytically oriented treatment of psychotic patients than are interpretations made by a detached and neutral psychotherapist.
