The Classification of Superego Material in the Hampstead Index

Joseph Sandler, Ph.D., Maria Kawenoka, Lily Neurath, B.A., Bernard Rosenblatt, Ph.D., Anneliese Schnurmann, B.A. and John Sigal, Ph.D.

In an earlier paper (Sandler, 1960) a theoretical model of superego functioning was put forward in an attempt to resolve a number of practical problems which had arisen in the classification of clinical material derived from the analyses of child patients, and relating to the superego. A further statement of aspects of this model is to be found in this Volume (see pp. 128-145). Accounts of the Hampstead Index have been given elsewhere (Anna Freud, 1959); (Sandler, 1960), (1961).

In the present report an attempt has been made to present a preliminary and tentative system of classification based on the superego model, together with illustrative clinical examples derived from material at present recorded in the Index. This classification is by no means a final or complete one, and the headings and definitions are continually being revised as new clinical material comes to our attention. There is, for obvious reasons, considerable overlap of headings.

The superego can be conceived of as having two main aspects.
