Handling indications for an initial psychotherapy interview

Handling indications for an initial psychotherapy interview

Zeitschrift für Psychosomatische Medizin und Psychoanalyse 40(2): 174-187

The treatment of indication in the psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapeutic initial interview has been neglected by research on the initial interview as well as on indication. The indication discourse is a genuine part of the psychotherapeutic initial examination which is of great importance for the acceptance of the indication by the patient. The indication discourse has its own tasks, roles, and contents. In the treatment of indication in the interview phases of preparation, information, and working with the patient's reactions can be differentiated, each of which contains further elements. Further research in this field should be guided by an interest in the role of the patient in the reception of indication.
