Freud’s fundamental discoveries date back to late 19th century. An attempt will be made to revisit these hypothesis from today’s vantage point. Concepts such as repression, the dynamic unconscious, and psycho-sexual development will be among the issues reviewed.

Educational Objectives: After attending, participants will be able to:
