Freud and The Psychoanalytic Unconscious

The Unconscious stores :
  • Instinctual Desires
  • Needs
  • Psychic Actions

Past thoughts and memories may be deleted from immediate consciousness,
but they direct the thoughts and feelings of the individual from the realm of the unconscious.

The Unconscious stores:
  • Unacceptable Ideas
  • Wishes or Desires
  • Traumatic Memories
  • and Painful Emotions
put out of mind by psychological repression.

Not all unconscious contents have to be negative.
