Part three of our four-film educational series aimed at A-Level students for The Freud Museum London.



The emotional world of children // His Majesty the Baby // The mother as first love object

Is it sexual? // Jealousy, rivalry, hatred and anxiety // The role of the father

Gender: Freud didn’t think you were just ‘born a boy’ or ‘born a girl’

There is no perfect resolution of the Oedipus complex // It marks us for life
