Types of psychological torture

Many forms of psychological torture methods attempt to destroy the subject’s normal self-image by removing them from any kind of control over their environment, isolation, monopolising of perception, impression of almightiness, creating a state of learned helplessness, psychological regression and depersonalization. Other techniques include humiliation, forced nudity and head shaving, exhausting by sleep deprivation, hooding and other forms of sensory deprivation.


A strictly fear-inducing method is the mock execution. Various threats operate on the same fear-inducing principle.


Another method is indirect torture, in which a victim is forced to witness the torture of another person, often a loved one. This preys on the victim’s affection for and loyalty to a partner, relative, friend, comrade-in-arms, etc, whose real pain induces vicarious suffering in the targeted psychological victim, who is thus loaded with guilt but spared physical harm that might affect his or her ability to comply.


Though widely used e.g. in Stalinist and Nazi prisons as well as other totaliarian regimes but well hidden, the publicly known systematics was developed in 1956 by the American psychiatrist Albert Biderman who examined several U.S. soldiers tortured by North Korean and Chinese secret services during the Korean war. He defined three basic actions to break the victims as dependence-debilisation-dreath. His work was further developed for the CIA.
