This chapter describes the assessment process, with clinical examples, and includes discussions of the types of expectations and assumptions that both patient and therapist bring to the process. The chapter includes specific discussions and recommendations as to the steps to follow for a comprehensive psychoanalytic assessment of the patient’s condition. It also includes specific treatment recommendations. It is vital for the assessor to have a sufficient knowledge base for the assessment and an awareness of his or her personal biases that could influence the result. A determination needs to be made regarding the appropriateness of each therapist to work with a particular patient.
