    Excerpt:

    Deception, self-deception, and the fallibility of memory are central issues in psychotherapy. Freud first accepted and then rejected the literal truth of patients’ childhood memories, concluding that these accounts were fantasies that the patients believed to have actually happened. “The 1930 Olympics” takes the issue of remembering-what-never-happened even further. It presents a patient who, as a form of resistance, consciously lies to—and deceives-his therapist. (13 pp.)
