Psychotherapy and Freudian psychology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In some of his papers Eysenck has discussed standard psychoanalytic therapy and ‘eclectic’ psychotherapy. In this section I will discuss only the former. Standard (or orthodox) psychoanalysis is a lengthier form of treatment than most other forms of psychotherapy, lasting two years or more on average. It involves systematic use of free association, interpretation and transference neurosis, and normally has as its goal the uncovering and resolution of the major emotional problems thought to originate in the patient’s childhood (White, 1956, p. 322).
