Freud interpreted this fantasy as wish-fulfillment. He had wished that Irma’s bad condition had not been their fault while the fantasy had satisfied this wish by informing him that another medical practitioner is at fault. According to this fantasy, Freud (1900) proceeded to suggest that a major purpose of fantasies ended up being the satisfaction of desires.
Freud distinguished between your manifest content of a fantasy ( exactly exactly what the dreamer remembers) and also the latent content, the symbolic concept associated with fantasy (in other words., the root wish). The manifest content is usually in line with the activities for the time.
The method whereby the underlying wish is translated to the manifest content is known as dreamwork. The goal of dreamwork is always to transform the wish that is forbidden a non-threatening kind, hence reducing anxiety and permitting us to continue sleeping. Dreamwork requires the procedure of condensation, displacement, and elaboration that is secondary.
The entire process of condensation may be the joining of several ideas/images into one. For example, a dream of a person might be a fantasy of both an individual’s dad plus one’s fan. A homely home could be the condensation of concerns about protection along with concerns about an individual’s look towards the remaining portion of the world.
Displacement occurs whenever we transform the individual or item we have been actually concerned with to another person. For instance, certainly one of Freud’s clients ended up being excessively resentful of their sister-in-law and used to her as your pet dog, imagined strangling a little white dog.
Freud interpreted this as representing their need to destroy their sister-in-law.继续阅读
