Psychoanalytical casuistry is perhaps the most exciting domain of psychoanalysis. This is because when reading a case analysis, we see haw and why, and are usually inclined to apply the psychoanalytic methods of approaching the psychic disorders upon ourselves.

The casuistry published on this site, nevertheless, is no easy job. For lay persons (beginners or others without any prior experience with the psychoanalytic statements) much of our psychoanalytic work may seem rather uncertain. That is why case publishing requires a lot of skill from us, the more so as the unconditional discretion rule regarding the personal life of those subjects of such cases must also be met.

In addition, the specific conditions for website publication impose a limitation of editing space so that no comprehensive account of the patient personal history will therefore be available.

Everything is limited to a few hints the author of the article (and of the analysis too) provides hoping to render the background of the case as complete as possible.

The following is the first case that shows how we actually approach our patients - more cases will be published soon (see also the above one).
