Abstract

In this study, the writer has attempted to discuss and summarize the difficulties involved in reporting results of psychoanalytic therapy, presenting the valid and invalid reasons usually involved in preventing the publication of therapeutic results, and has made a plea for and suggestions regarding, standard diagnostic criteria and standard criteria for evaluating the outcome of treatment. A total of 952 cases in which analysis was attempted are listed by diagnosis and therapeutic result. These figures demonstrate, the writer believes, that psychoanalysis must be adjudged an effective therapy for the psychoneuroses, sexual disorders and organ neuroses, and a therapy of some promise in the more difficult field of addictions and psychoses.
