The Resolution of Oral Conflicts in a Spider Phobia

Ralph B. Little


I have presented the history, fantasy, and dream material from a patient demonstrating loss of symptoms and character change, resulting from a resolution of the transference neurosis. In addition, it should be noted that he had lost the fear of the magical meaning of hostility which showed an increase in reality testing and a strengthened ego. Special emphasis was placed on libidinal change from oral to phallic levels and changes dealing with the drives from passive methods to active mastery. When considering termination of analysis, this case demonstrates the importance of looking for evidence of new constructive realignments of the id rather than relying just on alterations of the superego and ego.
