Aichhorn Revisited

John E. Schowalter, M.D.

August Aichhorn first published Wayward Youth in German in 1925. His willingness to approach a problem as difficult as delinquency in terms of psychoanalytic theory and to then test his theories with groups of delinquents in a reformatory setting were truly pioneering. Perhaps his greatest success as an educator was in attracting other psychoanalytic leaders, most notably Sigmund Freud and Kurt Eissler, to extol and extend his early efforts.
