Decker pages. The Free Press. In October , Sigmund Freud began treating an year-old woman for a mysterious cough and other signs of "hysteria. After 11 weeks, Dora stopped treatment, leaving much of the analytic work undone. Her case entered history as one of Freud's earliest and most significant failures, and it taught him and his critics many important lessons about psychoanalysis. Decker re-examines this case, giving the reader a detailed account of Dora's life and family background. Decker analyzes the family dynamics and the larger social realities that helped shape Dora's sensibility, and she offers her own assessment of why Dora's psychoanalysis "was a doomed affair" from the start.
Dora is the pseudonym given by Sigmund Freud to a patient whom he diagnosed with hysteria , and treated for about eleven weeks in The patient's real name was Ida Bauer ó ; her brother Otto Bauer was a leading member of the Austromarxism movement. Dora lived with her parents, who had a loveless marriage, but one which took place in close concert with another couple, Herr and Frau K. The crisis that led her father to bring Dora to Freud was her accusation that Herr K had made a sexual advance to her, at which she slapped his faceóan accusation which Herr K denied and in which her own father disbelieved. Freud himself reserved initial judgement on the matter, and was swiftly told by Dora that her father had a relationship with Frau K, and that she felt he was surreptitiously palming her off on Herr K in return.
