1.) Describe the view of human nature of this approach.The view of human nature of this approach is very dynamic. Irrational forces, unconscious motivations, determineour behavior and biological and initial drives as these evolve through key psychosexual stages in the first six years of our life.That means that there is a swap of energy and transformation. The conscious mind pretty much knows what is going on in the present. The preconscious mind holds info from both the unconscious and the conscious mind. The unconscious mind contains hidden or forgotten memories or experiences. 2.) Identify and describe the unique feature(s) that distinguish (es) this approach.Unique features that distinguish this approach are the conscious and the unconscious mind. Which are ways to understand and define problems of personality. The unconsciousmind cannot be studied on, but is learned from behavior. There are three kinds of anxiety: reality, neurotic, and moral. Reality anxiety is the fear of danger from the real world, and the level of such anxiety is consistent to the degree of real threat. Neurotic anxiety is the fear that the instincts will get out of hand and cause the person to do something for which he or she will be punished. Moral anxiety is the fear of one’s conscience. 3.) Identify and describe the therapeutic goals of this approach.?The goal of psychoanalytic treatment is to progressfunctioning in the client, which involves the reduction of symptoms, and the resolution of conflicts. These two goals are to make the unconscious conscious, and to improve the ego so that behavior is based more on “reality” and less on instinctual cravings or irrational guilt. Therapeutic methods are used to bring out unconscious material. Psychoanalytic therapy is directed toward achieving insight, but not just an intellectual understanding.4.) Identify and describe the central role of the therapist of this approach.?One of the functions of analysis is to assist clients achievethe freedom to love, work, and play. Some of the other functions include; helping clients in achieving honesty, self-awareness and more effective personal relationships, dealing with the anxietyrealistically, and also having control over impulses, and irrational behavior. Setting a therapeutic alliance is important if the therapy plans on progressing. Special attention is given to the client’s hesitation. The analyst in a respectful, open-minded way and decides when to make a certain outburst. The therapist pays attention to both what is unspoken and what is spoken, listens for pauses and differences in the client’s story. Concluding the meaning of reported dreams and free associations, and remains sensitive to messages concerning the client’s feelings toward the therapist. 5.) Identify and describe the expectations for the client during the therapy process of this approach.?There are certain techniques that are used in psychoanalytictherapy. Free association is one of them. Free association uses random word association. For example the client will say whatever comes to mind when the therapist says something.Then the therapist looks for and figures out patterns in the client’s responses so they can look at these patterns together. Dream analysis unravels repressed feelings that may be hidden in symbols that appear in the client’s dreams. The therapist helps the client discover the meaning and significance of those symbols. Transference analysis discusses the transfer of the client’s feelings and emotions from one person to another. 6.) Identify and describe the relationship between the client and therapist of this approach.?There is a difference between how the therapeutic relationship is looked past by classical analysis and contemporary relational analysis. The classical analyst sits outside the relationship, comments on it, and offers opinions. In contemporary relational psychoanalysis, the therapist does the opposite. Contemporary psychodynamic therapists view their emotional communication with clients to learn new information about them and create a bond with the client. Analytic therapy focuses on the feelings, perceptions, and actions that are happening in the moments of the therapy sessions. 7.) Identify and describe major techniques of this approach.?The techniques of psychoanalytic therapy are to raise awareness, show insights into the client’s behavior, and understand the meanings of the symptoms. There are six techniques of psychoanalytic therapy. (1) Maintain the analytic framework. Maintaining the framework refers to a whole range of procedural and stylistic factors, such as the analyst’s relative anonymity, maintaining neutrality and objectivity, the regularity and consistency of meetings, starting and ending sessions on time, clarity on fees and basic boundary issues such as the avoidance of advice giving or inflicting of therapist values. (2) Free association. In free association clients are motivated to say whatever comes to their mind, regardless of how vague, silly, crazy, illogical, or irrelevant it sounds. (3) Interpretation. Interpretation consists of the analyst pointing out, and explaining to the client the meanings of behavior that is manifested in dreams, free association, resistances, defenses, and the therapeutic relationships. (4) Dream analysis. Dream analysis is an important for uncovering unconscious material and giving the client insight into some areas of underlyingproblems. (5) Analysis Of Resistance. Resistance, a concept close to the practice of psychoanalysis, is anything that works against the progress of therapy and prevents the client from producing previously unconscious material. (6) Analysis Of Transference. Interpreting transference is a route to elucidating the client’s intrapsychic life. 8.) Describe clients who are appropriate and would benefit from this approach.This would help clients who like being up front, People who take responsible for their lives and actions. People who are willing to think the possibility, that they may not know everything about themselves. Those who are honest with themselves and with others, and have the tendency and courage to face the truth no matter how ugly it is. People who know that despite the fact that we live in a world that tends to make us think we can get what we want quickly, they know that something really worth it, takes time9.) Application of the video(s) to this approach.?You can actually fall in love at first sight. When you picture that dream person in your head and you see them in real life, you get a feeling in your heart that you found the perfect person,which results in you falling in love. Food is an ultimate desire, you can want sex and want a nice car, but something like eating is a big necessity. No child is born to a life of evil. “Actually”from four years old and on it depends on what goes on in their life to determine what kind of person they will become. Instinctis a fight or flight reactor. Basically are you going to fight or run from a certain situation? When you say congratulations at a wedding, you’re just saying that in the moment what you mean or supposed to say is “I send my sincere condolences”. 10.) Identify and describe on an aspect of this approach I like most (state your reasons) and one aspect of this approach I like least (state your reasons).?The one I like the most is the ego defense mechanism. Ego Defense Mechanism is to help the individual cope with anxiety and prevent the ego from being overwhelmed. Makes perfects sense, because in a real life situation when one of my good friends died I was so overwhelmed. I couldn’t believe he actually died. I had to call his phone, and eventually read on Facebook that it was actually true. I always knew there was a type of feeling or a reason why we force that denial upon us and now I know why. The aspect I liked the least was free association. I love how we live in a free country and we can say whatever we want. But sometimes I feel like something’s should be kept to you. Free association encourages the clients to say whatever comes to mind no matter how silly or vague. There’s just something’s I feel like they will shout out just because they have the green light to. Some of those times they might not have anything to do about how they are feeling currently. Just saying stuff to get off your back. I wouldn’t know if you wanted a response to half of the things you’re telling me.?
