Advances in psychoanalytic therapy. E. 17: 162–164. JENNIFER BONOVITZ Acting Out The concept of acting out has undergone considerable revision since it was first formulated by Freud (1914). Acting out was originally conceived of as the patient not remembering what had been repressed but “reproducing” the memory by acting it out; acting out was thus equated with transference behavior, which was also a repetition. The greater the resistance, the more extensively acting out would replace remembering.

That depends partly on what happened after his theories entered the public domain.
