Necessity for reeducating cerebral control

We have seen in the preceding chapters that the essential cause of most cases of psychoneurosis is an instability or insufficiency of what we call cerebral control.

We feel we have sufficient evidence to be able to use this information as a basis for treating psychasthenia.

Except in cases of emergency, drugs are of little help in recovering a lost cerebral faculty, or of completing a faculty that is underdeveloped; in such cases, we must turn to psychotherapeutic methods for results.

We will take a quick look at the various forms of treatment, not because we intend to criticize them, but rather to show how they led up to the formation of a therapeutic method which we call the "training."
