A virtual therapy collective 


 Virtually Freudian

At the turn of the last century, while seeing patients in Vienna and writing The Interpretation of Dreams, the young Freud escaped the city to take walks in Weinerwald, "the Vienna Woods."  It was from this environment that Freud worked out his theories about the unconscious world hidden in dreams.

In 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic, five psychoanalysts began to meet weekly over VR headsets to analyze dreams in virtual environments that lent space in which to look at the unconscious mind. In the spirit of Jacques Lacan's "return to Freud," and with an interest in the early Freud, who believed real trauma, seduction and sexual prohibition all played out in conscious and unconscious ways in his hysteric patients, we created our own a virtual therapy collective, "The Young Freuds."
