PMID:  835746     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The author collected data on 15 patients for whom therapy was interrupted because of a move to a distant city by the analyst or the patient. He found that 14 of these patients refused to accept transfer to another analyst as urged by their analyst; instead, they continued contact by phone and/or correspondence with the analyst for long periods of time. Continuation of contact was not related to diagnosis but perhaps to a basic inability of these patients to face and work through separation or to some type of special patient-therapist relationship.
