The Intermittent Psychoanalytical Therapy and a Patient Suffering from Asthama Bronchiale: Pragmatical and Theoretical Aspects of Indication of a High-Frequency Setting. Georg Bruns. Pp. 142-155.

Gerard Fountain

Psychoanalytic therapy usually is conducted continuously and in a constant setting. This is believed to bring out the best conditions for a therapeutic regression. The author describes the discontinuous, intermittent psychoanalytic treatment of a patient suffering from bronchial asthma. During times of treatment, five sessions a week took place. The high weekly frequency had to balance the repeated interruptions of the therapy because of the patient's stays abroad.

Though interruptions continued, under these conditions, the patient could attain a sufficiently deep regression and succeed in influencing the unconscious conflict and overcoming the asthmatic symptoms. The author adds some thoughts about a special indication for high-frequency psychoanalysis, referring to the patient's way of life.
