Description: Dora's father brought her to Freud hoping that the celebrated doctor could cure the young girl of her hysterical symptoms. He hoped that Freud could also persuade Dora to be more cordial to the K family. Frau K was Dora's father's mistress, and Dora had once been very fond of both the Ks, but now she claimed that Herr K was trying to seduce her. Dora felt that her father was encouraging Herr K as part of a sexual game in which she was the pawn. Freud believed Dora, but said that her dreams revealed that she wanted to yield to Herr K and Frau K, too. Dora broke off the analysis.
