Freud also came up with the idea of dream analysis; he believed that the things buried in our unconscious come to the surface in our dreams. One of the therapies born from the psychodynamic theory is the talking cure. The talking cure help bring some of the unconscious thoughts and memories to the surface where they can be dealt with.
Freud was the founding father of psychoanalysis, a method for treating a mental illness and also a theory which explains human behavior. Psychoanalysis is often known as the talking cure. Typically Freud would encourage his patient to talk freely (on his famous couch) regarding their symptoms and to describe exactly what was in their mind.
