Internal and External Barriers: Reaching out to help the Patient into Treatment, from Anna Freud to now
The lecture will outline the controversies of Anna Freud's pioneering work at the Hampstead Clinic (now Anna Freud Centre) and her early career in Vienna, regarding criticism for being too ‘educational’ in preparing a child and family for analysis, and not interpretive enough in the approach of ‘developmental help’, offered to children seen as primarily having severe ego or environmental deficits rather than neurotic conflicts.
This paper will also focus on working remotely in long-term analysis, because of geographical distances and pandemic conditions and thus consider the theoretical and technical aspects of working under conditions of compromise to our setting.
