Clinical Psychology: The study, evaluation, and treatment of individuals with mental illnesses and disabilities.  (See 28:36-29:13)

In this clip, Freud states that, “Ted’s father’s own fear of failure has caused him to make his son the embodiment of all of his own deepest anxieties about himself, and hence his aggression transference onto Ted.  Freud is representing clinical psychology well.  He has studied Ted throughout the movie and is evaluating Ted’s problems with his father.  These daddy-issues have caused Ted many problems throughout his life (according to discussions in the movie), and represent a mental illness or disabling circumstance.
