Although I am sure you know about it, let me draw your attention on a short text by S.Freud which may be of great interest to you. It is intitled : "Psycho-analysis and the establishment of the facts in legal proceedings" (http://nyfreudian.org/abstracts_13_09.html).
Written in 1906 it tells you why and how spontaneity fosters the expression of truth.
In the same vein, S.Freud always said that the worse resistance to mental healing is too much introspection. Psychoanalysis as a means of introspection is a misunderstanding of what it is actually. The so-called "talking-cure", as you may know, depends on FREE association.
Most of the contemporary litterature on emotions, unconscious etc ... is a remake of the freudian assertions.
