Alice Kross Frankel

Noting the literature's striking inattention to follow-up practices of child analysts, the author suggests areas of further exploration, stimulated by the responses to a questionnaire concerning twenty former patients of twelve child analysts. The data essentially demonstrated that the most explicit, planned, and analyst-encouraged follow-up visits took place in situations where: 1, termination was developmentally determined rather than on the basis of optimal conflict resolution; 2, significant early ego disturbances existed; and 3, the families were inadequate in supporting growth. Further exploration is urged in the following areas: the relation between specific childhood disturbances and/or specific environmental conditions and the analyst's felt need for greater follow-up effort; comparison of follow-up practices dealing with other patient groups, such as adult analytic patients and child psychotherapy patients; and the analyst's interest in follow-up, not in terms of countertransference but of attitudes, values, and aims regarding child analytic work.
