Sigmund Freud
1 Born: 6th, May, 1856 Czech Republic
1.1 Died: 23rd, September, 1939 London
1.2 Doctor Vienna, Austria.
2 Neurology, Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis
2.1 Founding Farther of Psychoanaylsis
2.2 Neurology: Disorders of the nervous system
2.3 Psychotherapy; Treatment given from a trained professional to a patient.
2.4 Psychoanalysis: Theroies of the mind
3 Dreams
3.1 He had the idea that dreaming and dreams were the guardians of sleep.
3.2 when we dream we disconnect ourselves from the external stimuli.
3.2.1 External Stimuli: Noise, Temperature, Light, The need to urinate, Numb are/ leg, Pain. Internal Stimuli: Emotions, Fears, Desires, Previous days activity
4 Manifest content: what the dream is said to be about by the dreamer- the story the dreamer tells.
5 Latent content: The meaning underlying the dream. If the symbols from the manifest content are translated ny an analyst, they can reveal unconscious thoughts
5.1 Unconscious Thoughts
5.1.1 He thought that part of the mind was not accessible and is hidden completely. He called it the Unconscious mind.
5.1.2 Freud focused on sexual issues and how they are important for humans. But discussing sexual issues was not socially acceptable in his day. When he talked about repressed unconscious thoughts he was often talking about repressed sexual wishes and desires.
5.1.3 We have unconscious thoughts that we know about and unconscious thoughts we don't know. Our Unconscious thoughts, wishes and desires guide a lot of our behaviour.
6 Mentally ill
6.1 Freud trained as a doctor and was distressed with how little was being done for mentally ill people. For example shaking patients to shake out demons. Freud wanted to do better and started to wonder about mental health as opposed to physical health. He travelled to France to learn hypnotism.
6.1.1 Hypnotism he rejected as the person couldn't remember the sessions which he thought was important. Nonetheless he realised that the mind was powerful and could cause mental health problems.
7 Condensation, Displacement, secondary elaboration
7.1 Condensation: Many ideas appearing as one idea in a dream. These separate elements are important in uncovering repressed material so that one idea needs to be unpicked.(represented as one symbol.)
7.2 Displacement: something unimportant that seems to be important, in order to shift attention from what is really important
7.3 Secondary Elaboration: using muddled ideas from dreamwork to build up a whole story. The dreamer will add nits to the dream when telling someone what it is about to try to make the dream make sense. This gets in the way of understanding the LATENT content of the dream
7.3.1 Dreamwork is what the mind is doing whilst dreaming- keeping unconscious thoughts hidden and repressed.l It is the job of the mind when dreaming to help protect the individual from undesirable thoughts, and dreamwork is the term for this 'job'.
