What is psychoanalysis ?
Psychoanalysis is a science that explores the various dimensions, processes and layers of the psyche; it is an effective treatment technique for psychological questions, problems, disorders and exploration.
How was psychoanalysis born ?
The creation of psychoanalysis and its establishment as a discipline with the above mentioned characteristics was realized by the Viennese physician Sigmund Freud. Sigmund Freud continued his theoretical and technical studies on psychoanalysis from the 1890s up to his death in 1939. In this period the science of psychoanalysis has gone through constant evolution and progress. This progress and transformation have been carried further by generations of psychoanalysts who have owned up to this most valuable legacy after Freud’s death with great devotion and embraced the tradition steadfastly established by Freud. Thus, a discipline of psychoanalysis has been founded as we know it presently; in constant pursuit of research, creation and treatment with well-established, tested standards, at the service of humankind for over a century.
