This chapter comments on Emerson's case notes covering the period from 19 November 1912 to 1 May 1913. Consisting of 108 sessions, Emerson found this part of the treatment “complex and persistently difficult,” far more so than “the smooth account of the abstract theory” of psychoanalysis had led him to expect. The success of the first part of the treatment, in which a history of two traumas—the men in the woods, the raping neighbour—was established, confirmed his view that the theory of repression with which he was working was true.
