It was in 1896 that Sigmund Freud first used the concept "psychoanalysis". This discipline has changed the study of the psyche and the treatment of its disorders. Psychoanalyis had a cultural and social impact around the world.
Aware of its responsibilities to psychoanalysis and the public, the Belgian society of psychoanalysis presents in a succinct form the basic principles of the psychoanalytic approach and its routes of transmission.
"Psychoanalysis is the name of a method of investigation of mental process that is virtually inaccessible otherwise, a method based on the investigation for the treatment of neurotic disorders, in a series of psychological concepts acquired by this set average and which grow to form a new scientific discipline" (Sigmund Freud).
