Many theorist have disagreements on Sigman Freud Psychoanalysis Theory, as a result the Contemporary Psychoanalysis was introduced. Classical analysis consist of path in which the patient should follow for a successful analysis and the interpretations are all directed at achieving this goal. The Psychoanalyst is unable of the client’s progress. A follow up is required to complete the analysis. The analyst will observe and look out for any abnormalities from the client’s unconscious.
In "The Ultimate Punishment: A Defense”, Ernest Van Den Haag, former professor at Fordham University, writes, “Punishments are imposed on persons, not on...economic groups”. Haag is completely brushes aside the truth that the death penalty is unjust to citizens with an unfavorable socioeconomic status. 95% of criminals on death row in the United States are originally impoverished citizens. These poverty-stricken defendants cannot afford lawyers, but the defense system available for them is commonly underfunded. As a result of this hindrance, court-appointed lawyers for these defendants are not compensated adequately, which results in a lack of competent lawyers due to low enticement.
What solution-focused theory lacks, is research. There is not a strong evidence base for this particular theory, because measurements tend to be problem-focused which goes against the strength based concepts of solution-focused therapy. Plus, there have been too many inconsistencies between research studies that have already been conducted, too many variables to account for, different populations to consider, and each individual social worker will have their own unique way of talking with and influencing how various clients, with differing stories, view the possibility for workable
Erikson claimed that Freuds’ theories are structural, fixed and every life event is linked to early childhood experiences. Erikson also criticizes the idea of normal and ill mind that Freud has. Unlike Freud, Erikson was interested in going forward, ego investments in adults, developmental direction and health. Freud believed that abnormality was the starting point to understand normality, Erikson believed the opposite. Also unlike Freud, Erikson thought that the history of psychology was focusing on fragmentation not human integration.
Self actualisation is another strength to this form of therapy as it “helps the client to fully concentrate on themselves and guide in decision making for growth and develop into an honest, selfless and independent person” according to Mearns (1994). This helps the client to have autonomy, gives them self growth and self acceptance and all of which I feel are necessary for Gloria. Rogers strives on having a good relationship between the client and therapist whereas Ellis believes that this is not necessary for effective counselling session or for personality change. However, the negative side to person-centred counselling could be that the client is not challenged by anyone as the therapist does not give opinions or suggestions. There is no structure to the therapy session and therefore it relies on the client to be heavily involved in the counselling session and this maybe too optimistic for some clients as they are not getting answers, so they may find it hard to progress.
They are unwilling to follow standards set by society, and make damaging conscious decisions such as using drugs or committing crimes. Rutger Bregman of “The Correspondent” illustrates more valid examples about the lower class, stating how they are usually the last to sign up for money management training and “when responding to job ads, the poor often write the worst applications and show up at interviews in the least professional attire” (Bregman 1). Although this might be true, the impacting cognitive effects from an impoverished upbringing can explain these behaviors. For the lower class, resting is a luxury and they are often exhausted by how much they have to work in order to pay the bills. The Atlantic states how “poverty 's stress interferes with our ability to make good decisions... because the short-term needs are so great and the long-term gains so implausible” (Thompson 1).
The therapist experiences unconditional positive regard for the client The therapist accepts the person as they are, puts no condition on valuing them, separates the behaviour from the person. When they know they are not being judged, it allows the client to think perhaps they do not have to judge themselves (Rogers, 1975?) 5. The therapist experiences an empathic understanding of the client’s frame of reference and communicates this experience to the client When the client is empathically heard, they get greater understanding of themselves. (Rogers, 1979) 6.
Phenomenology does not give scientific facts about the world around us, but tries to explain how the world appears through the individual’s perception. Phenomenologists do not accept the separation between the subject and the object, which is highlighted in Positivism. Positivism focuses on the separation between the real world and how it is viewed. They argue that is essential to think that the subject has a great relationship with the object, because according to them, it is through the object of the real world that we make sense of our own experiences. The subject refers to the individual world, while the object refers to the real world.
Freud initially wanted to further investigate the unconscious when his patient had physical symptoms that they had no recollection of the original cause of these symptoms, furthermore Freud wasn’t just interested in finding out the cause of the symptoms in his patients, he wanted to understand the unconscious mind as a whole and in great detail. All of the technique in which he began his work lead other theorists to either adapt and use, change completely or discard. In essence, Freud’s basic view of needing to understand the whole area of one’s psyche will allow a true knowledge of people and their situation and therefor obtaining the right information to help the client. (Margaret Hough) Van Renteghem and Van Eeden were one of the first physician to call themselves psychotherapists, Eeden believed that psychotherapy was “the cure of the body by the mind, aided by the impulse of one mind to another ” (Ellenberger
Grünbaum stated that the theory was “fundamentally flawed, even if the validity of his clinical evidence were not in question" but that "the clinical data are themselves suspect; more often than not, they may be the patient's responses to the suggestions and expectations of the analyst". There was a general consensus among critics that Freud’s theory was lacking empirical data, the demographical sample used to determine the efficacy of the theory was limited.10 Some more practical limitations of psychoanalysis would include the extensive time needed for each patient, the fact that it doesn’t work for all patients and sometimes can even surface repressed memories that will exacerbate the patient’s illness. Ultimately, it comes down to the question of whether medical professionals should treat the symptoms of the mental illness or the cause. A combination of psychoanalysis, medication and cognitive – behavioural therapies should be used and embrace the limitations and advantages of each theory/treatment and used
Conclusively, the ‘Experience Machine’ has illustrated an intriguing counter-argument to the hedonistic claims. By illustrating the concerns and problems of the machine Nozick in turn reveals flaws in the belief that the maximisation of pleasure and minimisation of pain is all that is required for one 's wellbeing. However, it is (arguably) equally as easy to find flaws in some of Nozick’s claims too. In this way, the ‘Experience Machine’ can be considered effective in the sense that it questions the hedonist and the concept of pleasure as holding the most intrinsic value yet still not fully convincing enough to fully dismiss the
Technically, this implies that people whose beliefs contradict mine are not “progressive.” When I consider the intersection of the looking glass self and socialization, I realize that this is not necessarily true. It highlights biases that I have about what I believe ought to be. For example, I have a friend who is a Tea Party member and she believes that she is progressive. Her experiences and socialization were completely different than mine and have led her to have a different set of beliefs than me. Understanding the role of socialization in our lives is key to engaging in open dialogues because it forces us to assess ourselves as critically as we assess
The drawbacks of such a study are also quite low, with the main disadvantage being the lengthy amount of time that the study needs in order for the study to be conducted (Rutter 68). Milgram’s Study of Obedience and the Stanford Prison Experiment are known for being more controversial than the Strange Situation, and, according to Katie Youngpeter, these two studies helped experts form the guidelines to ethics within psychological research (Youngpeter 7). In the case of Milgram’s Study of Obedience, one concern was the act of deception towards the human participant: in other words, the conductor of the study intentionally leaving out certain information from the participant before the study takes place. The current APA ethical guidelines regarding human participants in research include a mandatory “debriefing” after the study, in which the participants are given an explanation for their deception
Then again, mental health care providers are scarce and hard to get. And lastly, most individuals are uneducated in mental issues, and they will never recognize when they are sick and need to be assisted. 5) In what ways did WW I and WWII affect awareness of mental health disorders among the federal government and the American public? With what results? Some of the soldiers who came home from the two wars were visibly psychologically affected.
In his eyes, the brave men and women are not receiving the best quality treatment and support. Therefore, veterans have to suffer in the end. I somewhat agree with Peck statement because if a veteran has any type of permanent injury, then he or she cannot really function back into normal society. The veterans might need more help and guidance to really fit back into society. Some people might blame for the increase in the veterans homeless population because the lack of attention towards the increasing problem.
