Presents a description of the clinical methods developed by George Frankl. The reader is invited into the consulting room to witness how the patient is led to reveal to himself as well as the analyst, the world of his unconscious mind. Frankl posits that his therapeutic methods enable the patient to recall previously hidden experiences of infancy, with their physical reaction formations, and actually re-experience traumatic events which were responsible for neurotic and psychotic symptoms. He argues that the method also throws light on the origins of many physical diseases and makes them accessible to psychological treatment. The text is intended for mental health workers, psychoanalysts and psychiatrists, and for medical practitioners interested in the psychosomatic aspects of medicine.
