Legacy of Sigmund Freud:
Part of personality that deals with reality.
got inside peoples heads
Treated people who struggle with depression, but not a particular disorder
patients talk the whole time, so the doctor can figure out whats wrong
The person having this treatment should posses emotional and psychological strength
Goes over painful memories of the patient
Ensures that the impulses from the Id are expressed in a way exceptable to the real world.

This is the aspect of our mental processing that we can think and talk about rationally.
