Streaming Video - 2012
Rate this:
What makes people call talk-radio hosts and broadcast their problems to an audience of millions? Is there something truly therapeutic about sharing one's feelings with an impartial listener? When Sigmund Freud developed his famous talking cure he was working against a medical establishment that attributed mental illness to physical defects, and women's societal frustrations to a "wandering womb." This program examines Freud's theories and his influence on the field of psychiatry; and with a reenactment of the classic Dora case study, critiques his obsession with repressed sexual desire as the root of neurosis.
