Dora (case study)

freud cases

Then I was at home. At one point, he was convinced that sexual molestation in childhood was the cause of adult psychoneuroses. Dora Dora, whose real name was Ida Bauer, was 18 when her father first brought her to see Freud. Hans's father was instructed to reassure his son that his little ''widdler'' was safe and his father loved him. I must have been travelling in the meantime, but I knew nothing about that. To her sleeplessness, there adds a weird mood of apprehension, an uneasiness psychoanalysts use to call anxiety.

The Wolfman and Other Cases by Sigmund Freud

There would be room for some additional income, though. However, Freud's therapeutic input in this case was minimal, and a secondary aim was to explore what factors might have led to the phobia in the first place, and what factors led to its remission. For example, the unconscious mind is difficult to test and measure objectively. The life instincts are those that relate to a basic need for survival, reproduction, and pleasure. However, most of the evidence for Freud's theories are taken from an unrepresentative sample.

He died of cancer on 23 September 1939. After World War One, Freud spent less time in clinical observation and concentrated on the application of his theories to history, art, literature and anthropology. During one of her trances, she recalled watching an English tourist allow her dog to drink water from a glass. Anna had been brought up in a very strict household and was sexually ignorant and immature.

Little Hans

Secondary elaboration occurs when the unconscious mind strings together wish-fulfilling images in a logical order of events, further obscuring the latent content. Extracts from that volume, together with some later writings of mine on hysteria, are now to be had in an English translation prepared by Dr. When he was about three and a half years old his mother told him not to touch his widdler or else she would call the doctor to come and cut it off. One night she had seen a black snake. She tried to keep the snake off, but it was as though she was paralysed. We are not liable for any consequential, incidental, indirect, or special damages.

Sigmund Freud's Theories

The purpose of dreamwork is to transform the forbidden wish into a non-threatening form, thus reducing anxiety and allowing us to continue sleeping. Part of that, he said, came from a repressed memory that had surfaced. Dora is the given by to a patient whom he diagnosed with , and treated for about eleven weeks in 1900. Sugiro fortemente a leitura dos outros trabalhos iniciais, já que este é aplicado e o conhecimento básico da hipótese explicativa - ainda se valendo da permanência na incompletude infantil e processos de sexualidade mal alojados em algum sentido - para compreensão dos casos. That was in April 1886. However, as his theories were under development, you will find in most of his cases some analysis of Freud himself, as well of others psychoanalysts, about the flaws on the way to think the case or in the conduction of the treatment. His early work in science was scattershot and lacked follow-through.

What are Sigmund Freud case studies?

Some of the fantasies were bizarre, like an account of female circumcision where the little girl was forced to eat her own labia after it was excised. First and perhaps most importantly, in order to understand where psychology is at today, it is essential to take a look back at where we've been and how we got here. It is astounding that his ideas and his cult were so influential for so long. Does one take much more from these cases other than repression may lead to neuroses which manifest in wonderfully convoluted, tangenti My interest and understanding seemed to go down as the page numbers ticked up in this book. Hans' father, who provided Freud with most of his data, was already familiar with the Oedipus complex and interpreted the case in the light of this.

Psychology Case Study: Little Hans

freud cases

Very interesting, almost addictive, but absolute disgust at any moment. Freud believes that Dora's case is rather ordinary as far of cases of hysteria are concerned. Later, she developed a fear of water and was unable to drink for days at a time. This was also the period during which he believed his body was being turned into the body of a woman with assistance from little men who lived in his feet and ran the pumps that evacuated his old organs and pushed in the new and that his ultimate purpose in life was to. Hans feared horses with blinkers on. She then walked into a forest and asked a man she saw there. Valendo-se de mais falas do paciente num caso - ou casos - bem delineados, Freud utiliza sua proposição teórica para explicar inicialmente dois casos - que aparentemente são muito famosos: o caso do pequeno Hans - Ratman - e o Wolfman.

Freud Was a Fraud: A Triumph of Pseudoscience

He also had a major fear of rats after overhearing a story while he was in the army about a particularly horrible torture that he became terrified would be used on himself, his father, or the aforementioned lady. He never admitted being wrong, in one case saying his diagnosis had not been incorrect but had not been correct either. When God became the central figure to his delusion, Flechsig became a hated figure rather than a savior, suggesting to Freud that Schreber was also dealing with an intense, sexual attraction to Flechsig. Breuer her head; she had a severe nervous cough. In English in the original. Freudian Psychoanalysis is not a set of theories developed by a psychology professor in some Oxford or Harvard University library. Again, this was an Oedipal conflict.

An Overview of Sigmund Freud's Theories

Freud's guilt was thus relieved. Implicit social cognition: attitudes, self-esteem, and stereotypes. Como li em inglês não sei exatamente como foi traduzido. The ego's goal is to satisfy the demands of the id in a safe a socially acceptable way. He had a fear that the horse would come to the house and bite him and this was a punishment for him wishing that the horse would just lay down and die. His theories might have become outdated these days, but they still hold a significant place in the world of psychology.

He steered patients to a gynecologist who treated hysterical women with surgical procedures like hysterectomy and excision of the clitoris. Like Anna, Dora suffered from multiple symptoms, including migraines, depression, breathing difficulties, nervous cough, and inexplicable voice loss. She could not see clearly; she made a great effort, and brought her watch near to her eyes. Throughout this time, the main theme of his fantasies and dreams was widdlers and widdling. Preceding this comes an introduction by Gillian Beer, which is too much a summation of the main text but which redeems itself in its last ten pages. The least of these works is Little Hans, who tires with his insatiable need to talk of his widdler and plops, but it has the neat device of the second-hand narrator and is not to be missed.
