In psychology, the study of brain washing is often referred to as thought reform (thought reform) is included in the sphere of social influence. This brainwashing techniques that later can change attitudes, beliefs and behavior.
Brainwashing is a severe form of social influence that combines all the approaches to cause changes in the way people think a person without consent and often against his will, as reported by DiscoveryHealth.
Due to the influence of brainwashing is a form of invasive, this technique requires complete isolation and dependence on the subject, which is why most of the activities of brainwashing occurs in a prison camp or a place with full supervision.
The brain washing agent (brainwasher) must have full control over the target (brainwashee), resulting in sleep patterns, diet and other human basic needs depends on the will of the agent.
In the process of brainwashing, agents systematically break down the identity of the target to a point that does not work anymore.

If ‘new identity’ is stopped then the conviction will initially begin returning to normal.
