The Psychoanalytic Patient book
A S in medicine, therapeutic indications and prognosis are functions of both the nature of the disease and the capacities of the organism to resist it. Similarly, the results to be expected from a well-conducted psychoanalysis depend on both the nature of the condition treated and the capacity of the patient to perform his share of the psychoanalytic work and to tolerate the unpleasantUess of its difficult periods. In other words, a recommendation to a patient to be psycho analysed depends on both his need and his ability to utilize the method.
