In view of this, a pragmatic approach is needed. As an academic subject, psychoanalysis can be defined as that branch of psychology initiated by Freud that is concerned with three distinct areas of study: the development of the mind and the influence of early experience on adult mental states; the nature and role of unconscious mental phenomena; and the theory and practice of psychoanalytic treatment, particularly transference and countertransference.
