Tip: To see translations of Freud SE or GW…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up.  But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on?  The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser).  So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Jerome D. Oremland, M.D.

Although any dream or any series of dreams can be used by the analytic therapist as part of the large mosaic of interacting phenomena for evaluating the progress of an analytic therapy, the author is cautious about regarding any one dream or any series of dreams as portending termination.* The Janusian quality of dreams like the Janusian quality of the unconscious is seductively deceptive. Even though dreams occupy an unusually vital place in post hoc illustration, the use of dreams for predictive purposes is heavily freighted with transference and countertransference misinterpretation.

The specific dream during the termination phase of successful therapies that will be described belongs to a genre of dreams in which the therapist himself appears (Fenichel, 1924; Feldman, 1945; Gitelson, 1952; Rappaport, 1959; Harris, 1962; Rosenbaum, 1965).
