10 Reasons Why Freud Still Matters  (How many do you know?) ****************  6. Signal Anxiety.  	Strong emotions—love, anger, grief—can trigger anxiety. For example, anger may create anxiety because the experience and expression of anger may put one at risk of retaliation or rejection.  Grief may stir up anxiety because a loss seems too painful to bear. Sometimes we are afraid of our own feelings and the consequences of experiencing them.  ************   www.teawithfreud.com    $16

Mental Conflict.    	“If there is one dominant motif running through Freud’s prodigious outpouring of creative thinking, it is conflict.  The mind is in conflict with itself: upsetting thoughts are blocked by defenses; the ego battles against a tyrannical superego; the wish to get well is countered by the resistance to the therapist’s efforts.

The contents of the unconscious became a critical focus in Freud's psychology. He was not the first to note that we are sometimes unaware of our thoughts, feelings, and motives; but he elaborated on the unconscious by exploring slips of the tongue, convenient forgetting, and the meaning of dreams.  ****************************************  www.teawithfreud.com    $16
