Sigmund Freud’s Use of Catharsis and Cognition

  • Chapter

Abstract

Most present psychotherapies can trace their origins back to Sigmund Freud’s work either as modifications of his work or reactions against his thinking. Of course many of the ideas Freud promoted were based on the thinking of others (Ellenberger, 1970); however, it was Freud who started a school of thought and trained disciples who promoted and popularized his approach.
