About Sigmund Freud

Sigmund Freud, the Austrian psychiatrist famous as the father of psychoanalysis, used the techniques of free association and dream analysis to develop what has been called the talking cure, or talk therapy. He was born in 1856 in Moravia. Many concepts he developed have become part of the culture: the Oedipus complex, defense mechanisms, and the unconscious mind. He fled the Nazi regime in Austria in 1938, settling in London, where he died of cancer just one year later.
