Freud interpreted this dream as wish-fulfillment. He had wished that Irma’s bad condition wasn’t his fault therefore the fantasy had satisfied this wish by informing him that another physician was 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 involving the manifest content of the fantasy ( exactly exactly just what the dreamer remembers) as well as the latent content, the symbolic meaning of this fantasy (in other words., the root wish). The content that is manifest usually based on the occasions regarding the time.
The procedure whereby the wish that is underlying translated in to the manifest content is known as dreamwork. The goal of dreamwork is always to transform the wish that is forbidden a non-threatening type, therefore reducing anxiety and enabling us to continue resting.
