** In fact, nearly every other doctor on ''{{Cheers}}'' and ''{{Frasier}}'' is a behaviorist, and Frasier's diehard Freudianism is something of a RunningGag (behaviorism itself has fallen out of favor in psychology).

* Most of the field of psychology in Argentina is Freudian in nature. It is also the case in France too. More precisely, Jacques Lacan had a big influence in psychology there. Basically, he brought back Freud's work and modernized it (things are more complicated, though), so most of these psychologists would call themselves 'Freudian-Lacanian' instead of simply 'Freudian', so it's sort of a subversion. But while he is quite well-known there, chances are you never heard of him if you are from elsewhere. ** It is also deconstructed with regards to autism, for example, as many psychoanalysts refuse to recognize recent discoveries concerning it, and meet opposition from parents because of the catastrophic management of autistic people's health, and because these parents think they're needlessly made to feel guilty about it. However, there are some psychologists who do attempt to reconstruct it (sorta) by taking these discoveries and other scientific approaches into account, and discarding older theories, though. * Freud is important to the history of psychology so he often shows up in Psych 101 even if the teacher doesn't ''like'' him. (Especially in the history of psychology). Try to get through a unit in a psychology book without his name coming up.

* Some psychologists today are neo-Freudians, taking a very liberal approach to his ideas and combining them with those of Lacan, D.W. Winnicott, Melanie Klein and even hard-scientific (cognitive and behavioural) influences.

** A "kabbalistic exorcism" is described, sympathetically, in Creator/RobertAntonWilson's ''The Historical Illuminatus: The Earth will Shake''. Even the Jewish scholar who delivers the exorcism is inclined to see it pragmatically as a sort of psychodrama that effectively "shocks" the sufferer back into normality, while acknowledging the religious content does no harm either. However, the subject lapses back into psychosis later in the book and commits suicide. ** Many Christian denominations feel the same way so they have developed Christian Psychologists who are licensed but place their knowledge in a Biblical context, rather than a secular one. * Most of the field of psychology in Argentina is Freudian in nature.

Cut to Frasier's reaction.

* Averted in ''Film/BatmanBegins'' with Jonathan Crane. The only psychology we see him engage in is total bullshit designed to get Rachel off his back, and even that actually namechecks [[CarlJung Jungian]] theories instead of Freud. Although one could technically argue his status as a behavioural or biological psychologist, considering the ways he was using the fear gas.

* ''Acts of the Apostles'' by John F. X. Sundman involves a bunch of Bill Gatesesque billionaires running around attempting to become self-actualized, may not count as they all are bat shit crazy from a modern psychological perspective.

* Played straight and averted in Chaim Potok's ''Literature/TheChosen''. Danny's entire pre-university education in psychology involved reading Freud (in the original German) and assumes that Freud is the be-all-and-end all of psychology. Only when he enters university (1960-1970s) does he realize that Freudianism has been completely jettisoned by academia and replaced with Hard Behaviorism. The culture shock, needless to say, is considerable.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': [[FreudWasRight Freudian]] themes aside, the final episodes are straight out of psychodynamic psychotherapy. [[GainaxEnding Maybe]].

[[folder:Fan Works]] * ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': [[FreudWasRight Freudian]] themes aside, ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': Played for laughs. When Ching tells Shinji she wants to talk about his father issues and counsel him she begins their talk by paroding Freud, donning glasses, a pipe and asking him about his father with a bad German accent: -->''“No, last night I think she’ll talk to you about soon, but you’ll really have to ask her. I wanted to talk to you for your own sake. I know your relationship with your father is hmm… complicated, to put it mildly? And the final episodes are straight recognition that you’re more like him than you thought hit pretty hard yesterday, correct?”''\\ ''Shinji closed his eyes for a moment and sighed. “Yes. But I think I know what I want to do about it. And I believe Asuka can help me do so.”''\\ ''Ching nodded. “That’s good to hear, but still, I’m willing to bet you’ll benefit from talking to me about it some. And with that in mind,” Ching reached her right hand into her left cuff and pulled out a neat packet of wires that sprang out into a pair of round-rimmed glasses when she snapped her wrist. She placed them on her face and repeated the gesture with her left hand and right cuff to somehow produce a small pipe. She placed that in her mouth and blew a couple of bubbles out of psychodynamic psychotherapy. [[GainaxEnding Maybe]].it. “Zo, tell me about you fadda,” she said with a terribly faked Vienna accent.''

* ''A PinkyAndTheBrain [[ChristmasSpecial Christmas]]'': Pinky notes that the elf costume Brain's wearing makes him look like Sigmund Freud. Brain's reply is that he's Jungian. They meet the actual Freud, who is portrayed as a leader in hypnosis therapy. It still hits on a little of what Freud would apparently develop, but at least at the time it's state of the art techniques.

* Essentially all psychology ''was'' Freudian in 1946, which is why it's portrayed that way in ''Film/LetThereBeLight'', a documentary about UsefulNotes/WorldWarII veterans suffering from severe [[ShellShockedVeteran PTSD]]. Although the narration talks about physical causes for psychological disorders, the troubled soldiers are fixed mostly with the Freudian "talking cure", with some help from hypnosis and sodium amytal.
