With the publication of  The Interpretation of Dreams  and  The Psychopathology of  Everyday Life,  Freud's writings gained a much wider audience than they had ever had  before. Interested physicians attended Freud's lectures, and the more adventurous of  these physicians actually started to use psychoanalysis with their patients. In 1902, the  same year that he was promoted to assistant professor, Freud began hosting weekly  discussion groups at his house on Wednesday evenings. At the beginning, the group  was known as the "Wednesday Psychological Society," but in April of 1908 it would  officially become the "Viennese Psycho-Analytic Society." In 1904, Eugen Bleuler, a Swiss psychiatrist who ran a renowned mental hospital in  Zurich, wrote Freud to tell him that he and his colleagues had been using  psychoanalysis with their patients, and that it seemed to be a promising approach.
