Born in Freiberg Moravia (now the Czech Republic) in 1856
Eldest of eight siblings
young Sigmund was a very serious-minded child
did not have close friendship with siblings
mother's favorite child
Freud had unconscious death wish for his younger brother, Julius.
Studied medicine because of his fascination on the human nature
realized that his wish did not actually cause his brother’s death and that children often have a death wish for a younger sibling.
In 1885, he studied hypnotism as a treatment for hysteria under Jean Martin Charcot
Under Josef Breuer, Freud further studied hysteria and the use of catharsis in treating hysteria
In 1895, Freud and Breuer published 'Studies on Hysteria'.
Freud introduced the term 'psychical analysis'
In 1900, he finished 'The Interpretation of Dreams'
a product of his self-analysis
contained many interpretations of his own dreams disguised behind fictitious names
In 1903, Freud's friendship with Wilhem Fliess, Carl Jung and Alfred Adler ended.

the forcing of unwanted, anxiety-ridden experiences into the unconscious as a defense against the pain of that anxiety.
inherited experiences that lie beyond an individual's personal experience
Two sources of unconscious processes:
eye of the conscious
Reaching the conscious level is like making an appointment with a king.
