  1. Gilbert Kliman Says:

    A great place to look for measurable value of psychoanalysis is in its application to preschool children, using comparison and control as well as treated cohorts. In my latest book, I’ve assembled data from multiple sources showing robust evidence that children with serious emotional disorders, and even those on the autism spectrum benefit more from applications of in-classroom psychoanalytic psychotherapy than from applications of behavioral therapy or pull-out into private play sessions. See Gilbert Kliman 2011 Reflective Network Therapy in the Preschool Classroom, University Press of America. (amazon.com and kindle carry it). Its compilation from various sites shows that even for autistic children the clinical and cognitive benefits of in-classroom psychoanalytic therapy significantly outweigh those of applied behavioral analysis. All at one sixth the tremendous costs of A.B.A. for children on the autism spectrum. Benefitting most of all (as measured by Axis V CGAS measures by third parties are traumatized preschoolers, whose IQ’s also rise the most with in-classroom psychoanalytic psychotherapy. DVD’s of such work are available free to those who write me for confidentiality agreements. gil.kliman@cphc-sf.org
