Live Presentation via Zoom

This talk will show how unconscious processes, now accepted in psychological science and practice, were ignored and/or denied for so long. There will be a listing of current areas of systematic research into unconscious processes, and clinical implications of each will be discussed. There will also be a demonstration of their operation. Finally, some political findings, obtained by assessing unconscious associations, will be examined.

  1. Explain why the concept of the unconscious has been resisted historically
  2. Review the areas of empirical research that study unconscious processes
