Caitlin Dekker Psych 341 Sec.1 Personality Study Guide- Freud 1. What conclusions did Freud draw about unconscious processes from his “talking method” of therapy? -Freud concluded that his patients were holding back a strong emotion connected to a certain event and because they were unable to express this emotion, the emotion found another way of expressing itself: neuroticism. The patient was unconscious of these emotions or memories until hypnotized. 2. What are unconscious processes? -Unconscious processes are forces that affect a person without him/her aware of it. 3. What did Freud see as the role of emotions in human life? -Freud believed emotions help us evaluate the world and certain events and happenings evoke strong feelings that must be expressed or they will find ways of expressing indirectly and often destructively. 4. Why do people repress certain “wishes,” what does it mean to repress them, what are repressed wishes like (describe them), and how can these wishes be brought to consciousness and dealt with? -People do not want to accept the fact that they are no who they would like to be because it causes pain, so during a traumatic event a wish is repressed when it goes again an ego- ideal. Repression is the blocking of a wish or desire from consciousness. Repressed wishes do not behave agreeably and often produce neurotic symptoms or expressing itself in a disguised manner. These wishes can be brought to consciousness through free association and the interpretation of dreams. 5.
