Freudian analysis

Freudian analysis

The prototypic form of psychoanalysis developed by Sigmund Freud (1856–1939), in which the patient and psychiatrist identify traumatic events and experiences that occurred in the patient’s childhood and which have been repressed in adult life. Psychoanalysis differs from psychotherapy in that it is more formal, intense and concerned with early sexuality and events of infancy, which may or may not be remembered as they actually occurred (as in the false memory phenomenon).
