Example text

However, once back home and provoked in a minor way by a younger brother or sister the full force of the rage and humiliation is unleashed on the sibling. These feelings have been displaced. Sometimes conflicts and difficulties can lead to a flurry of work or constructive activity: this is sublimation.

The anxiety and the energy that go with it are released in this way.

We defend ourselves against such awareness because this awareness resonates with painful experiences of our own. In fact Robertson’s earliest allies were the parents of children in hospital who recognised the truth of his portrayal. In fact, it took nearly ten years from the first showing of the film to the Platt Report of 1959 which recommended the extension of hospital visiting times, something which parents today accept as their right.
