M. D. Eder

The short analyses which the writer has been obliged by his particular cases to carry out have given him perhaps more opportunity than many others to study certain typical dream situations. It is no new observation that patients who seldom or never dream may dream and remember their dreams after analysis begins. Nevertheless, he thinks the analytic situation as portrayed in dreams has not received sufficient attention. The interpretation of a dream can involve many problems, but the introduction of the analytic solution is a condition never to be omitted. The narcissistic position in the early phase of analysis is characterized by certain types of resistances clearly seen in dreams: defending the patient's incursions on his privacy; resistances to lying down, against having to say everything (dreams of nakedness, etc.); resistance against this 'cold method' shewn by dreams requiring the analyst to do or say something. The symbolism of numbers should never be overlooked. Among the most frequent motives is that of the degradation of the analyst. As transference occurs, the analytic situation changes, as do the dreams. Again at the end there is another flare up: the Resistance of the last phase. A number of dreams are quoted in support of the text.
