Sigmund Freud could not believe what patients told him about sexual and other forms of abuse by family members. This, together with his observations about psychosexual development, led him to over-emphasize the role of fantasy in generating emotional problems. In this communication, extensive clinical material is provided to support the thesis that what patients report about past and present impingement upon them from the outside world is equally important and needs to be taken very seriously.
