Definition


The primal scream is the basis of primal therapy, a form of psychotherapy whose principle is to exorcise a deep and long-buried psychological pain by expressing it in a powerful cry. This technique has a theoretical interest in the treatment of some chronic psychiatric conditions such as certain neuroses. Several sessions are usually required to achieve the primal scream, the goal and liberating element which allows the patient to find a good mental balance.
