Freud - Improvements to the study (4)


  • Freud should do one to one interviews with Little Hans.
  • However will reduce validity because Little Hans not just behaving naturally in home environment and being asked questions by parent who would normally be present.
  • Little Hans will have to  give self report answers (may be subject to social desirability bias

Effects to the results:

  • Involves analysis of data by “expert” and removes bias of Little Hans’ father’s involvement.
  • So data should be more reliable and power  imbalance between child subject and adult Interviewer). More accurate dreams.
  • He should have had more evidence to support his theory.
