Doctor Ph.D. Degree - Psychology

Psychoanalysis via distance learning


Psychoanalysis aims at modifications of a person's personality through the study of the unconscious mind. Psychoanalysis was established in the early 1890s by Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud. Psychoanalysis promotes awareness of unconscious, maladaptive and habitually recurrent patterns of emotion and behavior, allowing previously unconscious aspects of the self to become integrated and promoting optimal functioning, healing and creative expression. Current psychoanalytic models are continually augmented and revised by analytic experience, clinical outcomes and ongoing research.
