In our work with adults, we can think about the analytic frame by turning to a host of reference points in the Lacanian and Freudian oeuvre. We read, for example, Freud’s papers on technique (Freud, 1911–1915 [1914]), or Lacan’s “Variations on the Standard Treatment” and “Direction of the Treatment and Principles of its Power” (Lacan, 1955; 1958). However, with the exception of a few notes here and there, Lacan did not provide us with much direction regarding working with children. We therefore question what modifications should be made to the analytic frame and conception of the treatment when we work with children insofar as they present us with unique challenges. What is more, thoughtful choices must be made in each specific case because whether we are working with children or adults, the conditions for the possibility of analysis are not universal or one-size-fits-all.
