Free Association: A method used by Freud in psychoanalysis where the patient is encouraged to express a flow of consciousness. The process helps to uncover links which can then be interpreted.
FREUD and ANALYSING DREAMS Objectives: 1)To describe Freuds 3 methods his therapy 2)To describe PSYCHOANALYSIS as a therapy for a patient 3)To evaluate psychoanalysis – understand the pros and cons
Recall: what do we already know about Freuds ideas and explanations of behaviour? 1.Where does Freud say that behaviour originates? 2.Identify some examples of mental illness. 3.Where do dreams come from according to Freud? 4.There are 2 parts to dreams – what are they? Examples? 5.Did Freud believe in common symbols and interpretations for dreams? 6.What are condensation, displacement and secondary elaboration? 7.What does he say are the reasons for mental illness? 8.Why is Freud so important a figure in mental illness? 9.Who can access our unconscious mind? 10.What does subjective mean?
You have a go… Ashmur dreamt about being a little boy and being in a large boat about to go under a bridge that was too low. In the dream he was in the boat alone, and there were two people, one on each bank, shouting at him. He was too frightened to get out of the boat and be confronted by those on the banks, and terrified because the bridge was too low.
You have a go… The two people, one on each bank could be Ashmurs parents. Their shouting could be interpreted as fear that a small boy might have of his parents as they are in authority. There could have been a past experience of a boat trip that was frightening. Or the boat could represent Ashmur himself, feeling insecure and not on firm ground. The low bridge could represent a block of some sort that in Ashmurs life was holding him back. This could be not being able to be promoted in his job, feeling trapped in his personal life or some other reason for feeling trapped.
