January 5, 2024 — “Fragment of an Analysis of a Case of Hysteria” (Dora), (1905 [1901])

[59 pages]

We will continue to read the Dora case, focusing on her first and second dream (sections II and III) and the Postscript (section IV) in which Freud describes the impact on this treatment of his failure to appreciate and interpret the negative transference. The Postscript remains one of the first and most important of Freud’s descriptions of the primacy of and clinical use of transference in psychoanalysis.

Learning objective: Participants will be able to describe two features of the latent meaning of Dora’s first and second dreams and to identify one impact of the failure to recognize and interpret the negative transference.
