THOMPSON, Santiago et al. The diagnosis process in psychoanalysis. Anu. investig. [online]. 2007, vol.14, pp.00-00. ISSN 1851-1686.

The present study tries to delimit and develop the characteristics of the psychoanalytical diagnosis process. In this way, the medical diagnosis and the psychoanalytical one are distinguished, portraying the psychoanalytical diagnosis as a result as well as a process. Subsequently, the initial stages and passages that are involved in such process are described , pointing out the indicators of the different clinical types (neurosis, psychosis, perversion) that appear in the various presentations. In this framework, the role of the motive for consulting in such process is delimited, the differences and relationships between the moment of consulting and the moment of getting ill are described, and the passages that belong to the transferencial field are explained. The symptom's preparation within the transferencial link is suggested as one of the results of the psychoanalytical diagnosis process; it is related with the knowledge in the diverse clinical types, as well as the subjective initial presentations in relation with the knowledge. Finally, the differentiation between diagnosis as a process and as a result are complemented, taking as a parameter the effects that either one has on the analyst and on the patient. All the work is constructed theoretically on the basis of the works of Sigmund Freud and Jacques Lacan.
