What is Psychoanalysis?
Psychoanalysis is a set of theories, as well as a therapeutic practice, created by Austrian physician Sigmund Freud based on the observation that individuals’ emotions and behaviors are determined by unconscious factors. These unconscious factors may create unhappiness, troubling personality traits, difficulties in work or love relationships, or disturbances in mood and self-esteem. Because these forces are unconscious, the advice of friends and family, the reading of self-help books, or even the most determined efforts of will, often fail to provide relief.
Psychoanalytic treatment demonstrates how these unconscious factors affect current relationships and patterns of behavior, traces them back to their historical origins, shows how they have changed and developed over time, and helps the individual to deal better with the realities of adult life.
