From the Paper:

"Sigmund Freud was the founder of psychoanalysis. Within psychoanalysis the core belief was that each individual behaved in ways that were specifically grounded in unconscious thought. Unconscious thought was considered by Freud to be the cause of many behavioral issues because it controlled the cognitive processing of the individual without the individual's knowledge. Freud believed that the unconscious mind was where each individual held secrets to his or her life that had to be explored. This exploration became psychoanalysis."
