The Use of Humor - The use of jokes and humor

from clinical and theoretical perspectives

Newirth reviewed Freud’s concept of “joke-work” as parallel to “dream-work.” He presented clinical examples in which humor was a vehicle for interpreting, organizing, perceiving, and generating unconscious meanings and developing deep intersubjective experiences of emotional connection. Corbett illustrated the psychotherapeutic action of comedy in the opening phase of treatment of a man with an early history of neglect. Comedy helped to defy neurotic gravity, reanimate primal density, open a maternal erotic transference, and access underlying aggression.
