7). Furthermore, the psychodynamic and the humanistic approach are both take the view that these approaches are not strictly scientific, yet they still use scientific methods and conduct scientific research (Jarvis, 2000, p. 8). Finally, a humanistic psychologist Rogers’s ideas, just like psychodynamic psychologist Freud’s ideas are derived from several cases and this is interpreted as subjective and depends on how the psychologists interpreted of these cases (Jarvis, 2000, p. 65). Contrasts In humanistic psychology people have free will but there is no free will (determinism) in psychodynamic approach (Jarvis, 2000, p. 60). Humanistic approach is developed because of the limitations of behavioral and psychodynamic approaches (Jarvis, 2000, p. 61).
Erikson’s Theory of Psychosocial Development Many researchers have tried to revise after Freud 's psychoanalysis, to show the value associated with the process and I have to follow their development (Kail, Cavanaugh, 2004).

Although contemporary psychotherapy has altered its limitation relating to time constraints, the relief for the client may come sooner from other, or at least adjunct, therapies. A second limitation and criticism of psychotherapy is that the amelioration of many psychological issues cannot be accomplished within the vacuum of psychodynamic therapy. In this client 's case, her most acute symptoms are directly related to her relationship with her husband. I imagine, at some point, the need to include her husband
Personality is one of the main areas of psychology research. Over the years, researchers developed theories trying to explain how people are different and similar. Personality traits were grouped together to be determinants of more general traits such as Extraversion, Agreeableness or Neuroticism. The traits were tested for various correlations.
