What is Psychoanalysis?
Psychoanalysis is a specialized and effective long-term psychotherapy for a variety of persistent emotional disorders and problems in living. People often seek and benefit from psychoanalysis after experiences with shorter-term therapies and/or medications that have not produced significant change in their personal or relationship problems.
Psychoanalysis focuses on an in-depth examination of all aspects of the person’s subjective experience and inner life. The benefits of psychoanalysis can be transformative: as the patient experiences the positive results of more flexible, adaptive and less reactive ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. Freud originally defined a treatment success as one’s increased ability to work and love.
Who We Are
For over 50 years the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis and the Denver Psychoanalytic Society have been serving our community. To better serve our community in the next 50 years, we'd like to learn more about psychoanalysis from different perspectives. The results of this survey will teach us insights into psychoanalysis and mental health in our community.
The survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete depending on which survey you complete. Feel free to forward this email or the survey links to others.
