British Journal of Medical Psychology. XXXI, 1958: Psychotherapeutic Aspects of Male Homosexuality. L. H. Rubinstein. Pp. 14-18.

The author summarizes in this short paper his ten years of psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy and psychoanalysis of homosexuality. He cautions us, for example, in selecting cases for treatment, against placing too much importance on the type of homosexual behavior. Activity and passivity are closely intermingled and Rubinstein has not found cure more likely for the active homosexual (who needs only to change in his choice of sexual object) than for the passive homosexual (who must change both object and direction of his sexual drives). The bipolarity of mental attitudes must always be kept in mind. Rubinstein's other comments on results do not differ greatly from those of many therapists of homosexuals. Complete analysis is the best treatment, though abbreviated or modified forms of analysis can achieve satisfactory results in selected cases; a fair number of patients can be helped to a certain extent; and, in general, the prognosis must remain doubtful.
