is a psychoanalytic approach aimed at healing of the personality by changing mindsets and attitudes.
The analytical trilogy - previously called integrative or integral psychoanalysis - has been prepared by the Brazilian psychoanalyst Norberto Keppe. He has roots in traditional psychoanalysis, but differs from Freud's ideas in several respects. He has also been influenced by Socrates, Kierkegaard and Viktor Frankl. The analytical trilogy introduced in Sweden in the mid-1980s.
The trilogy is about the union of the three areas of feelings (spirituality), thought (philosophy) and action (science). It is both a theory of how the human mind and body works, and a practical method for dealing with human problems and development.
The method is based on the fact that thoughts and emotions affect your body and mind. The idea is that you must learn to understand how erroneous interpretations of reality and faulty thinking patterns create both corporeal and physical problems. One should be aware of their destructive thought patterns and values, to gain insight into the inherent potential for change and learn to change their mind set.
According Keppe have faulty life-attitudes often become part of the personality. Reality ignored or distorted as a result of what he called Theo mania (of theos = God, and mania = egoism, självförgudning): man's spasmodic attempts to be absolutely perfect, without error and shortcomings, and her way of behaving as if she were of creation rulers by refusing to adapt to the reality she shares with all other life. This way of censoring the consciousness in relation to the realities call for Keppe inconscientization - to make themselves unaware of what is already known. The denial of reality means that we end up further away from the healthy core of personality. There are different analytical trilogy from the Freudian analysis: Keppe believe that a person gets sick of it hidden and denied - not by what he or she is unaware of.
The basis of the analytical trilogy is that man can choose his attitude to life and that a change of life 'attitudes can affect the immune system and mobilize the individual's own innate healing resources.
An important concept is interiorisering (from the Latin interior = interior). A person places like the cause of his illness or his destructive behavior to factors outside himself, as a way to free yourself from guilt and responsibility. The analytical trilogy aims to help the person rather than placing the negative projection inside yourself - it comes to taking responsibility for their own experiences and feelings. Then the body relax, and all parts of the personality can interact in the healing process.
Therapy method is based on conversation between the analyst and the analyzed, however, face to face - this is itself one must fix your gaze on - but according to Freudian "soffmodell". It works both with individual analysis and group therapy.
The problems that the analytical trilogy tackles include physical and mental illness and various destructive behaviors. This action program such as counseling for individuals and families, physical and mental health care and rehabilitation of drug addicts and former prisoners, the latter has so far not been an issue in Sweden.
