Abraham’s private patients included some children, but it would seem that he didn’t think that this should make any difference to his work with adults. In 1913, he published a paper entitled ‘The effect on the psyche of a 9-year-old child of the observation of sexual relations between its parents’.
This was the object of a report, which remained strictly confidential until Mrs Abraham gave it to her daughter one day. Hilda in turn gave it to her second analyst, Hilde Maas, who gave it to Dinora Pines, who inserted it into Karl Abraham’s biography, published in 1974. Hilda had died in 1971. Reading this account by Karl Abraham, one can see how carefully he carried out a detailed analysis of all the material offered by his daughter while respecting the child’s personality. At the outset he explains to her why he is doing the analysis ‘in my capacity of doctor’.
His father does not immediately understand, and says that that is not nice. Hans explains: ‘If he thinks it, it is good all the same, because you can write it to the professor’, referring his analyst father back to his supervisor! At this point, Freud writes a footnote: ‘Well done, little Hans! ’ The interpretations are made, in classic fashion, in the transference: ‘the big giraffe is me’, etc. At one point, the supervisor-professor takes part in the analysis directly: the father and son consult him.
