An Introduction to Psychoanalysis

A regionally accredited provider of psychoanalytic education that is based in the northeastern United States, the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis offers a number of graduate-level degrees in psychoanalysis, psychoanalytic counseling and psychoanlaysis and culture. The Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis prepares post-bachelor’s students for careers in the field of psychoanalysis by integrating theories of intellectual learning with emotional understanding.

Psychoanalysis, which is defined as both a theory of human nature and as a treatment method for psychological difficulties, focuses on understanding the motivation and inspiration that underlie all human behavior. Initially introduced by Sigmund Freud more than a century ago, psychoanalysis primarily concentrates on the role of the unconscious, which can have a tremendous impact on a person’s emotions and his or her psychological well-being. By bringing certain aspects of the unconscious into consciousness, psychoanalysts can help patients to examine their unconscious processes in a truthful manner and ultimately gain greater self-understanding.
