Product Description

The Vienna Schools of Psychotherapy – Sigmund Freud 1/4oz Proof Gold

Three wise men

All born into Jewish families in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Sigmund Freud, Alfred Adler and Viktor Frankl were the founders of the three different Vienna schools of psychotherapy, the scientific discipline established in the Austrian capital in the 20th century. Freud (1856–1939) was the father of psychoanalysis, Adler (1870–1937) founded individual psychology, while Frankl (1905–1997) was the founder of logo therapy, the three pioneering schools of psychotherapy to which this fascinating series is dedicated. The men behind them feature on the obverse of each coin, while the reverse illustrates the core concept of their respective theories. Psychotherapeutic methods and theories have proliferated since the early days, but that might never have happened without the foundations laid by Freud, Adler and Frankl

Celebrating the pioneering schools of psychotherapy – the scientific discipline established in the Austrian capital in the 20th century – the enlightening three-coin series, Vienna Schools of Psychotherapy, gets underway in the shape of the founding father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud. His theories may be the subject of much discussion, but Freud was undoubtedly one of the great thinkers of the 20th century and his work still resonates some 80 years since his death.

Born into a Jewish family on 6 May 1856, in the present-day Czech Republic, Freud, a neurologist, set up his clinical practice in Vienna in 1886. Using a technique called ‘Free association’, in which he encouraged his patients to talk freely without interruption or suggestion, and another known as ‘Transference’, in which patients transfer their feeling from previous relationships onto the relationship with the analyst, Freud made his name as the founder of psychoanalysis, with help from his mentor Josef Breuer (1842-1925). In 1938, Freud and his family fled Vienna for London to escape the Nazis. He died in the British capital in1939, but many terms attributed to Freud, such as ‘Oedipus complex’, ‘super ego’, ‘Freudian slip’ and ‘libido’, live on., while a portrait of Freud, based on a photo taken in 1926 by Ferdinand Schmutzer, features on the coin’s obverse.

Although his theories are the subject of much discussion, Sigmund Freud’s work still resonates in Western popular culture. A neurologist, Freud set up his clinical practice in Vienna in 1886, where he made his name as the founder of psychoanalysis, with which he treated patients by means of dialogue. In 1938, Freud and his family fled Vienna for London to escape the Nazis. He died in the British capital in 1939, but many of his terms, such as ‘Oedipus complex’, ‘super ego’, ‘Freudian slip’ and ‘libido’, live on. The ‘will to pleasure’, a central element in Freud’s work, is illustrated on the reverse of the coin. Freud himself features on the coin’s obverse.
