This process requires the patient to record every ‘impression’ of a dreams gives them (either on paper or to a therapist) without self-criticism, and then, through analysis, figure out the desire the dream is trying to convey. To demonstrate this, Freud goes further and examines a dream of his own. His dream goes as follows: He discusses this bizarre dream. Mrs. E.L. is someone he is barely in contact with, and doesn’t plan to meet soon. The…

In the DreamWorks film Anastasia, an orphan in Soviet Russia is seeking just that, “Home, love, family, [and] will never be complete until [she finds them].” Her upbringing in an emotionally abusive orphanage instills that desire so deep inside her that she risks imprisonment while illegally escaping Russia, and endures dangerous train and boat trips, both of which almost end in death.

Disney and…
