Young Doctor Freud( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Still wrestling with his own demons and isolated from his colleagues, Freud reluctantly abandons the idea that hysteria is caused by childhood abuse. Instead he implicates the power of fantasy and wishes, forces hidden away from conscious awareness. To better understand his patients and to alleviate his own suffering, Freud begins to analyze himself, and discovers, in part by analyzing his own dreams, an inner rivalry with his father, and long submerged feelings of passion for his mother. He comes to believe that such deep-seated emotional conflicts are powerful and likely universal - a theory which becomes the basis of the now-famous "Oedipal Complex." Concluding that dreams are the gateway to understanding the unconscious mind, Freud throws himself into the creation of a seminal work on the subject, The Interpretation of Dreams, which would forever alter our conception of the human mind."--Container

Young Dr. Freud( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first episode relates how Freud, as a young scientist at the end of the 19th century, was fascinated by the brain. An aspiring neurologist, he traveled to Paris, where doctors were trying to understand the mental illness known as "hysteria," and witnessed its treatment with hypnosis. Freud committed himself to finding the cause of hysteria and its cure. Returning to Vienna, he began medical practice treating nervous disorders. To cure his patients, he tried, then abandoned, hypnotism, inventing his own treatment based on "free association" and interpreting dreams. As he struggled to formulate his theories, Freud was tormented by headaches, palpitations, and depression. To his horror, he came to believe that hysteria was caused by childhood sexual abuse

Young Doctor Freud( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a young scientist, Sigmund Freud is fascinated by the brain, but unable to earn enough money to marry the woman he loves, he abandons research for a career in medicine. An aspiring neurologist, Freud travels to Paris, where doctors are trying to understand the mental illness known as "hysteria." Here, he witnesses the seemingly miraculous treatment of the illness with hypnosis, which sometimes offers temporary relief. His interest piqued, Freud commits himself to finding the cause of hysteria and its cure. He returns to Vienna and begins medical practice treating nervous disorders. To cure his patients, he tries, then abandons, hypnotism, inventing instead his own unusual treatment based on "free association" and interpreting dreams. As he struggles to formulate his theories, Freud is tormented by migraine headaches, heart palpitations, and depression. To his horror, he comes to believe that hysteria is caused by childhood sexual abuse, but his colleagues roundly reject his theory. Freud, however, is convinced that he has found the key to unlocking the secrets of the mind."--Container
