Abreaction

Breuer and Freud discovered that important events connected with the emotional life of the patient, which were forgotten, were expressed under hypnosis, was called “mental catharsis” and the process of affording an outlet for emotion in talking was called “abreaction“.

For Sigmund Freud the neurotic symptons are a product of unconscious conflicts.
