Overview

Aims and Scope

According to Freud, psychotherapy is “nothing more than an exchange of words.” This linguistic study explores how it is that such an exchange can, by itself, cure psychological illnesses, and examines key moments of actual therapeutic discourse. The detailed analyses of the dialogues reconstruct how mental structures are altered through language, thereby expanding our overall understanding of the relationship between language and psyche.
