Therapies Psychotherapy  involves an emotionally charged,  confiding interaction between a trained therapist and  a mental patient. Biomedical therapy  uses drugs or other procedures  that act on the patient’s nervous system, treating his  or her psychological disorders. An   eclectic approach  uses various forms of healing  techniques depending upon the client’s unique  problems.

Psychoanalysis: Aims Since psychological problems originate from childhood  repressed impulses and conflicts, the aim of psychoanalysis is  to bring repressed feelings into conscious awareness where  the patient can deal with them. When energy devoted to id-ego-superego conflicts is  released, the patient’s anxiety lessens.
