Phobias and Sigmund Freud

Did you know that…..

Sigmund Freud introduced the dynamic conception of phobia ?

The psychoanalytic formulation of the phobic mechanism is contained in his paper “Obsessions and phobias : Their Psychical Mechanisms and Their Aetiology“, published in 1895, and his clinical study “Analysis of a Phobia in a Five Year-Old Boy” edited in 1909, and commonly known as the case of “Little Hans”.
