Impacts and Major Contributions:

Most known for his discovery of the psychoanalysis of the subconscious . The unconscious had three parts to it, ego, superego, and Id. The ego balances primitive needs and moral beliefs. The superego acts for the conscience. And the Id has the primitive thoughts and need of gratification. Cultural differences and personal life differences can have an effect on behavior, and psychology. He used dream interpretation, transference, and free association as strategies to his therapeutic technique, which centered on talk therapy.

Freud's relevance:

Freud's theories on many things have been “debunked” and scientifically proven that they are detrimental to many groups today. Such as woman and the lgtb+ community. One source stated that “He is still relevant but not used for anything more than a teaching point in certain areas of his work.” Still Freud's work is looked upon for guidance, and while there is plenty bad there still is plenty good. Freud is responsible for the work of neuroimaging techniques used to see the subconscious processing.
