This paper discusses Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytical theory of development and explains that is the theory of normal and abnormal personality development, whereby by the interplay between unconscious conflict and early psychosexual development are emphasized. The paper describes the approach and tools used for psychoanalysis and further discusses that Freud set the precedent for applying an analytic method to the assertion and the investigation of the connection between unconscious conflict and early psychosexual development.
From the Paper:"Free association is the method use in psychotherapy to encourage the patient to say something--the first thing--that comes into their mind, no matter how trivial, unrelated or embarrassing, in a kind of tangential stream-of-consciousness to uncovering the deeper strains of the subconscious, and the deeper issues underlying the cognitive psychological process which the patient is visibly trying to resolve rationally, but whose heart or underlying issue is obscured by various identity conflicts, basically based on one central conflict that is the crux of Freud's theory and study.
