School of Education and Behavioral Science

school of education and behavioral   Dean’s message  

Education is one of the major driving forces at the back of economic, social, cultural and political development of a country. It is a process by which man transmits his experiences, new findings and values accumulated over the years, in his struggle for survival and development through generations. Especially in the context of our country, education is highly expected to contribute for the overall development. We need effective engineers for our buildings and constructions, we need medical doctors for our health treatment, and we need lawyers for our justice and other professionals. Realizing this, we required placing great attention on quality education with firm belief for the long term development of the country.  All the stake holders should take the responsibility of building generation with our society indigenous culture, norms and values.

In line with this, the most important institutions that support and promote the empowerment of generation are educational institutions like colleges and schools. Schools like other organization have goal to be achieved.   They also produce skilled and trained man power that could solve the problems of a country. It is generally believed that the society’s future depends on the success of schools effectively carrying out their objectives.  

Hence again I would like to ask all responsible bodies to support, grant and help in all aspect the educational institutions in the process of the struggle for survival and development through generations.

                      Fig. Sigmund Freud

Sigmund Freud (born Sigismund Schlomo Freud; 6 May 1856 – 23 September 1939) was an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis, a clinical method for treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst.

Freud was born to Galician Jewish parents in the Moravian town of Freiberg, in the Austrian Empire. He qualified as a doctor of medicine in 1881 at the University of Vienna. Upon completing his habilitation in 1885, he was appointed a docent in neuropathology and became an affiliated professor in 1902. Freud lived and worked in Vienna, having set up his clinical practice there in 1886. In 1938 Freud left Austria to escape the Nazis. He died in exile in the United Kingdom in 1939.

In creating psychoanalysis, Freud developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association and discovered transference, establishing its central role in the analytic process. Freud's redefinition of sexuality to include its infantile forms led him to formulate the Oedipus complex as the central tenet of psychoanalytical theory.  His analysis of dreams as wish-fulfillments provided him with models for the clinical analysis of symptom formation and the underlying mechanisms of repression. On this basis Freud elaborated his theory of the unconscious and went on to develop a model of psychic structure comprising id, ego and super-ego.Freud postulated the existence of libido, an energy with which mental processes and structures are invested and which generates erotic attachments, and a death drive, the source of compulsive repetition, hate, aggression and neurotic guilt. In his later work Freud developed a wide-ranging interpretation and critique of religion and culture.

Though, in overall decline as a diagnostic and clinical practice, psychoanalysis remains influential within psychologypsychiatry, and psychotherapy, and across the humanities. As such, it continues to generate extensive and highly contested debate with regard to its therapeutic efficacy, its scientific status, and whether it advances or is detrimental to the feminist cause. Nonetheless, Freud's work has suffused contemporary Western thought and popular culture. In the words of W. H. Auden's 1940 poetic tribute, by the time of Freud's death, he had become "a whole climate of opinion / under whom we conduct our different lives.
