BC: in the play Medea we get shown a very good case of somebody who may need the help of different psychologists. If Sigmund Freud was around at this time he would have diagnosed with having to big of a superego because she thought that she could get back at her husband by hurting something she loves as well which was not going to turn out well from the start. But other than that she didn't have many problems.

6: Sigmund Freud had many theories over his time ranging from alot of different things, from stages of psychosexual development, to his theory on dreams,to ego and superegos and defense mechanisms. His psychosexual development is broken down into 5 different stages being the oral stage, the anal stage, the phallic stage, the latent period and genital stage these are different stage that you go through as you grow older. Freuds theory on dreams is a reservoir of feelings, thoughts, urges, and memories that outside of our conscious awareness. Freuds theory on defense mechanisms is because of anxiety from the ego and superego we have developed a number of defense mechanisms in order for us to cope with stress and anxiety in our lives.
