Marianne Makman

Ladame presents several cases of the difficult, usually failed treatments of depressed, narcissistically disturbed older adolescents. The need to maintain the illusion of control over themselves and their environments as well as maintaining "the idealized image of an omnipotent loving object fused with a partial self-image" caused these patients to flee treatment. The author discusses his findings and speculates about the efficacy of the analytic method in these and similar cases.
