Although it was the aim of the General Medical Society to unify the various schools of thought among psychotherapists, there were inevitable factions: Adlerians (including Adler), Jungians (including Jung), Stekelians (including Stekel), and Freudians such as Groddeck, Horney, Wilhelm Reich, and Sando Rado (though not including Freud). The great majority of psychoanalysts who were members of the General Medical Society were revisionists like the neo-Freudian Horney, the almost indefinable Groddeck, the free-love communist Reich, and the intensely intellectual rebel Schultz-Hencke. For its part, the German Psychoanalytic Society did not recognise the General Medical Society and increasingly the two organizations found themselves moving further apart rather than closer together.
