The process of language acquisition, embedded in our formative years, provides a unique lens through which to examine the unconscious mechanisms at play in psychodynamic psychotherapy.

This article aims to unravel the complexities of psychodynamic psychotherapy by drawing parallels with the way we learn and absorb language.

It explores unconscious processes during a time when the brain’s architecture, particularly the prefrontal cortex, is still in its formative stages.

As we examine the implicit memory within the motor striatum and its role in language development, we aim to illuminate the nuanced relationship between language, behaviour, and the unconscious patterns psychodynamic psychotherapy endeavours to understand and modify.
