Phobia is defined as an irrational fear medicine. Aircraft are often a common object of phobias, we talk about the known phobia to fly or fear. For psychoanalysis, the object of the phobia is secondary, gaining all the relevance the subject who suffers from it. Why not classify the phobia by its object: Hydrophobia (phobia to water) agoraphobia (fear of open spaces) claustrophobia (fear of closed and small spaces), etc., but that distinguish simple phobias, those that show a fear of exaggeration to something to what almost everyone at some point in their life has something of fear: snakes, darkness, storms, which are more the order of the hysteria, and other phobias, whose purpose is more unusual: phobia of horses, dogs, etc. Agoraphobia is particularly common in patients with anxiety neurosis or anxiety disorders. That aspect of irrationality that has phobia is because there is a shift at the psychic level.
The displacement is a deformation which gives the appearance of absurdity to the that awareness of what lies. It is better understood with an example. Phobias of animals are very common in children, in which the distance between the animal and man is much lower than for the adult male. The first love of the child is the mother, and his first rival for the love of mother is the father, which feared punishment if he should find out what the child feels for the mother. But in addition to fear, the child loves the father, there is where the conflict that is resolved by a displacement of the fear about an outer object, already does not fear the father, now fears the animal; the dog, horse, etc. In reality, when it is feared the father, he renounces the mother, but phobic patient does not want to resign.
By not be fear or fear the father instead, fears or fears appear to all. Fear protects from fears. We can include phobias to the aircraft within phobias to transport. Let’s not forget that the first transport the child knows is the womb, the mother’s womb, that us hosts during the nine months of pregnancy. Phobias to the aircraft always have a component of claustrophobia (fear of losing enclosed in small spaces). The womb is also called mother cloister. Where it enters the fobico when it enters the plane? He returns in the body of his mother? Generally the worst moments are when the doors are closed there the patient feels that there is no loophole. It is not the fear the father to perform this necessary separation from the mother. Appear fears. Only in an analytical process, hiring the services of a psychoanalyst, the patient fobico can a life without fear, without fear. Not without fear, because fear protects us, but do not sit. Fears feel, you suffer. Original author and source of the article.
