September 30, 2022 — The role of the unconscious in thought processes
What do psychoanalysts mean when they use the term “the unconscious”? Traditionally, analysts used the unconscious to describe what could not enter consciousness because it was repressed. Analysts now add splitting and dissociation to describe these processes. Because analysts focus on expanding the capacity for self-reflection, we think about how and why experiences remain outside of our awareness. We work to create an atmosphere of openness and acceptance, where the “unthought known” can emerge.
