What is psychoanalysis?

Sophia

Answer:

Dear Sophia,

Psychoanalysis is a method to get to the root cause of a patient's current behavior or actions.

It is based on Freud's most famous psychoanalysis model ego and the superego.

Freud believed that conflicting psychic forces struggle for supremacy, and behavior represents a compromise between these forces.

Freud proposed that persons have inborn sexual drives and instincts.

Psychological defenses are constructed by the personality to keep these instincts under control.

Unconscious forces determine behavior.

Based on psychoanalysis, if you can recall a painful experience and apply that memory to a current situation, you could possibly 'cure' yourself over time.
