About Sigmund Freud
Sigmund Freud was one of the most influential and central figures in the area of neurology, psychology, psychotherapy, and psychoanalysis. Often cited as the father of psychoanalysis, Freud developed two of the more well-known techniques in the form of transference and free association, which allows patients to redirect their feelings to another object (former) and openly speak for themselves during a session (latter). He was also known for coining the Oedipus complex and presenting the idea of libido, as well as his extensive analysis of the unconscious mind which he often referred to as a collection of repressed ideas.
Some of his more known works include The Interpretation of Dreams (1900), Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious (1905), Beyond the Pleasure Principle (1920), and The Ego and the Id (1923).
