This relived disturbing experiences along with symptoms. Positive TRANSFERENCE: she was transferring the love she felt for her father to her therapist Legend: Breuer saw her charm and helplessness similar to his own mother and because of the attraction he could no longer treat her, she was then in hysteria with childbirth and Breuer terminated the hysteria through hypnosis, he then took his own wife to Venice and impregnated her.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
