    You could talk about Freud's theory of personality development? The id, ego, superego etc.

    Defence mechanisms such as repression

    The unconscious, preconscious and the concious

    Stages of psychosexual development

    ...this is all Freudian theory but Freud conducted psychoanalysis using psychodynamic theories so hopefully this will help you.
