- ItemDid Freud misinterpret reported memories of sexual abuse as fantasies?(1995) Powell, Russell A.; Boer, Douglas P.Argues that Freud may have misinterpreted real memories of sexual abuse as imaginary after his abandonment of the seduction theory. Certain theoretical statements by Freud, as well as his advice to Jung concerning a 6-yr-old girl who had accused her foster-father of sexual abuse, indicate that he may have been significantly biased toward interpreting certain types of incest allegations as fantasies.
