OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

These things that were kept back were the source of our problems and the result of symptomology All related to things that had no physiological source: paralysis, loss of speech, blurring of vision, auditory hallucinations, lack of desire to take nourishment -Didn't think he was good at hypnosis, didn't think that it was relie ymptoms would return or others would come in their place -Decided to try other things, but didn't induce trance and would ask them to think hard, put pressure on their forehead, thoughts which lead to other deeper, more painful thoughts -Developed the cardinal primal rule of psychoanalysis: to say whatever comes to mind no matter how silly, vulgar, perverse, threatening, etc. The symptom is a shortcut to expressing disguised memories -Would change his theories every few years -Noticed patients' resistance to come to grips w/ deeply troubling thoughts The Unconscious Mindmind no matter how silly, vulgar, perverse, threatening, etc. The symptom is a shortcut to expressing disguised memories -Would change his theories every few years -Noticed patients' resistance to come to grips w/ deeply troubling thoughts The Unconscious Mind -Conscious mind:what you're actively thinking about -Pre-conscious: of or associated with a part of the mind below the level of immediate conscious awareness, from which memories and emotions that have not been repressed can be recalled. -Dark part of the mind; nconscious Primitive -earliest phases of our development Hard to retrieve things Unavailable A force that keeps it away from our consciousness b/c for us to become aware of it would severely upset us- proscribed by the society in which we live.
