Critical Evaluation of the Psychodynamic Approach The psychodynamic approach, developed by Freud, emphasizes the interplay of unconscious psychological processes in determining human thought, feelings, and behaviour. The basis of this approach is that psychological factors play a major role in determining behaviour and shaping personality. Freud divided the human psyche into three; the ID, ego and superego. He said you were born with ID which was in your

I primarily believe in the behavioral perspective. However, on the topic of obsessive compulsive disorder I find that I favor the psychodynamic perspective. OCD is classified as a long lasting disorder, in which a person has recurring thoughts and behaviors they feel need to be completed repetitively. I tend to
This perspective involves examining the physical aspects that affect a living thing’s behavior such as the brain, nervous system, and genetics. Depression can best be explained by the biological perspective of psychology. The disorder is caused by changes in the brain’s neurotransmitters, chemicals that relay messages to the body from the
Altogether, Steven’s ego defense mechanism has failed to control his unacceptable id impulses, which lead to his chronic worry and negative ruminations. Insofar, his childhood experiences coupled with both his parents being alcoholics, has conflicted with Steven’s unconscious forces, since becoming aware that he is expecting his first child. Or perhaps, his fixation on the actions of his parents could have impacted him. Irrespective of both, they are all important in helping us to understand Steven’s presenting concerns and allowing him to gain a deepened understanding of self and others, recognize his strengths and challenges and develop or increase his capacities to cope more effectively (Borden, 2000; Cortina, 2010).

Nice post Garrick, It’s interesting to see how our thought motive our emotions and behaviors to react as a response in a good or bad way. When reading and learning about Cognitive therapy I discovered that there’s various disorder that comes along with cognitive distortion which may ignite or cause
Meredith had lost her other half, her soul mate, her husband, Derek Shepard. She now found herself lost and remembering back to her life as a child being paired with a repetition of the quote “The carousel never stops turning,” once spoken by her mother. Now left with 2 children, along with one on the way, Meredith disappears from Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital. Recalling her past love with Derek, Meredith is unsure of how to move on, yet has a horrifying past of events quite similar to this to help her find her way. Following in her mother's footsteps, Meredith leaves when there seems to be nothing left of her.
Final IMG Paper In any film, there is always a deep mental process through the behavior of its characters. Why they do the things they do and how to give a detailed explanation on their behavior. The Imitation Game shows many examples of psychology perspectives to analyze and break down. Psychodynamic
The client to be discussed in this assessment report is Mr. John Jones. Mr. Jones was twenty-one-years of age when he was evaluated on March 2, 2010. Mr. Jones was referred for an assessment by his psychiatrist. Mr. Jones and his mother presented on for this assessment and each were seen individually with Mr. Jones permission after he agreed to and signed the informed consent. Mr. Jones was informed through the informed consent that since was referred by his psychiatrist, his psychiatrist would receive a copy of the assessment. However, due to Mr. Jones age and limits of confidentiality, the discussion with Mr. Jones’ mother was limited in order to maintain and follow the code of ethics.
Even Gill lets this negative stigma about Kevin having a psychological abnormality affect him. When Gill’s wife brings up that Kevin’s teacher asked if they had ever gotten a psychological evaluation done on Kevin, Gill starts to freak out. He tries to combat the negative stuff in his head about getting a psych evaluation by listing off all these great things about Kevin and then even shifts the blame by saying maybe his teacher is crazy or doesn’t know what she is talking about. He also tries to defend Kevin to himself by shifting the blame and saying that if anyone needs a psych evaluation it is Gary, his sisters kid, because he is the one with the real problems not Kevin. This is another example of how strong social labels can be. They can
Theory of Practice Often in the professional world occupations use different methodologies to guide people through their practice. As a social worker we are educated to use evidence based methods to provide a sound intervention or preventation process to help consumers address their barriers. In may practice as a social worker I would like to utilize both psychodynamic and cognitive behavior therapy when partnering with clients to address their barriers.
Eclectic psychology is a varied approach to psychology in which psychotherapists pool a number of psychotherapy theories together in order to provide a flexible foundation to adapt to a patient’s needs. Eclecticism is a fairly new style of therapy used today in psychology. At one point, therapists were using just a single system or practice, but now eclectic psychotherapy is highly dominant. The ‘’No’’ side of the issue says that eclectic approaches have a weak conceptual bases and without a guiding framework, therapists are less knowledgeable about the theories overall. Don Macdonald and Marcia Webb believe that it is unnecessary for psychotherapists to know multiple theories to work successfully. I believe Jean A. Carter brings up good
The history of Psychodynamic psychology originated with Sigmund Freud in the late 19th century. Freud proposed a psychodynamic theory to which personality consists of the id. The Id is present at birth and it resides in the world of unconsciousness. Freud also said that the unconscious is also a place where human instinctual biological drives reside. The drives direct our behaviour towards choices that promise to satisfy our basic human needs. The drives ensure our survival like drinking water and eating food, the desire for reproduction and the necessity for aggression.
Psychodynamic Ideas According to Sigmund Freud’s vision of humanity, Jon is caught in a struggle between unconscious forces; id desires sex, aggression and conflict; ego is concerned with reality checking and social adaptation; and the superego which is concerned with morals and values obtained from parents and society; which require Jon
