As we begin our discussion of treatment, we should keep in mind what we learned in the preceding chapters, and consider the cure of psychasthenia from two aspects:

1. Functional

2. Psychological

We will therefore have two well-defined objectives:

1. Modify the cerebral mechanism through functional re-education.

2. Modify the mental state through psychological re-education.

These two objectives are actually inseparable, and we are only making the distinction for the sake of clarity.
