● Freud was really interested in the latent content of the dream, not the manifest content ● Freud says even in our dreams we are inhibited and embarrassed ● We tend to dream in codes and symbols because of this embarrassment ● We are still embarrassed about aggression, sexual expression, etc…. ● In order to protect ourselves from this embarrassment, we dream in codes ● So Freud really cares about the latent content ● Freud says that everything in the dream is important ● Not just the key action ● Every detail that you have in the dream is relevant ● You might just casually mention a minor detail that isn’t the key content and Freud says even these details are important ● Sometimes you will get a Freudian slip in the analysis ● This is when you accidentally tell the truth on yourself ● Freud says this is the unconscious bursting forth ● The truth comes out about a particular situation or topic or person ● Very often, the two things sound the same but they have two very different meanings ● e.g. if a cop pulls you over, you’re running late, and you say to the cop “fuck you” instead of “thank you” ● Dr. Brainerd, for some unknown reason, collects Freudian slips ● Sometimes patients start to direct their feelings that they have towards other people onto their therapist ● Freud called this transference ● Many of Freud’s own patients became popular psychoanalysts on their own, but they didn’t get big enough to be in our textbooks or anything ● However, there were plenty of people who disagreed with Freud ● These people often had bitter break ups with Freud ● Freud would not tolerate any changes to this theory and he would literally hate you for the rest of your life ● It has been said that Freud was a “good hater” ● Adler was one of the people who broke up with him ● Adler is probably a more effective psychoanalyst than Freud ● His therapy is still used today ● Adler was relatively short in stature and he was elected to the the president of the Viennese psychoanalytic society and Freud flew into a rage and said “wonderful, I made a pygmy famous” ● Freud is kind of a twisted puppy
