Psychogenics is a mysterious discipline that is a mix between psionics and psychoanalysis. It is only available to members of VII, and only in chronicles in which the Sleepers interpretation of VII is considered canon; if the chronicle features the Princes of the Fallen City or the Betrayed (or some other interpretation of the VII), Psychogenics most likely does not exist.

Psychogenics does not spread as most disciplines would; most disciplines require the Kindred learning them to actively seek out their existence. Instead, Psychogenics seeks out the Kindred; if they are of high Humanity, existing Sleepers may try to convert them with an infusion of Vitae, automatically teaching this discipline. However, its power comes at great cost, as the sleepers may, at any moment, become uncontrolled vampire slayers. In the Sleepers, VII is not considered a covenant, and this discipline can be owned by members of any covenant, as long as they exhibit its intrinsic weakness.

This discipline is detailed in VII, in the third and final of its three parts.
