The PIT provides exploratory rationale to the patient. The therapist attempts to bestow a rationale for the patient, which affirms the significance of relating emotional or somatic symptoms to interpersonal conflicts or problems. By the end of initial sessions, the link between the interpersonal difficulties and emotional problems and distress should be constructed. To be able to do this is important because it is one of the principal points for patient to remain in therapy (Guthrie,
In his theory of dissociation he stated that: “The nature of conscious activity, especially partial automatism in which a part of one's personality is split off from self-awareness and follows an autonomous subconscious development”. Janet’s theory of the subconscious can be compared to Freud’s theory which is: “the unconscious mind governs behavior to a greater degree than people suspect”. Although there’re differences in the two theories, the main idea still remains, that the subconscious mind comprises thoughts inaccessible to the consciousness but to some extent, affect our behaviours personalities. Carl Jung (1953) also arrived at the same theory as Freud regarding the subconscious mind . However, there is a major difference between Jung and Freud’s model of the unconsciousness.
Before diving into a psychological analysis, Freudian methods must be explained. Freudian Psychology is defined as “Psychology relating to or influenced by Sigmund Freud and his methods of psychoanalysis, especially with reference to the importance of sexuality in human behavior” (PsychologyToday.com). This definition, in simpler terms, means that it is the study of the sexual motives behind a person’s actions. Abigail Williams is
It will be argued that although there are many theories that can be used in social work practices a critical perspective (feminist theory) is clearly the most appropriate theory to apply in regards to my social justice issue, domestic violence. The first theory that will be explored is a conservative practice, the psychodynamic theory. As a social worker, taking on a psychodynamic practice involves individualising the user, separation from social contexts and works with forces in maintaining the status quo which ignores the importance of societal constructs (Bliss & Rasmussen, 2013). The Psychodynamic theory was introduced by a man named Sigmund Freud. He developed a theory which focused on the unconscious behaviours and mental processors of an individual, which may be coherent with the individuals upbringing (Burton, Westen, & Kowalski, 2015).

The id which is the basic desire for what each person wants. The superego, which is the opposite of id, it houses our sense of guilt. Lastly, there is the ego, the balance between the id and superego. The ego represents reality. Focusing on Victor Frankenstein and the monster he created, one can better understand their personalities by examining
This research is essentially guided by the psychoanalytic concepts of Abjection and The Uncanny propounded by Julia Kristeva (1982) and Sigmund Freud (1919) respectively. These concepts complement each other on the different analytical aspects of the texts under study. In some stages of the study, the analysis is reinforced by Propp (1968)’s narratological functions to examine the textual narrative processes that generate a horror world. An overview of these concepts is therefore necessary in order to understand how they relate to the texts the study is concerned with. The concept of abjection developed in Powers of Horror: An Essay on Abjection is a psychoanalytic concept that was brought forward by Julia Kristeva in 1980 in her analyses on
His argument doesn’t neglect the fact that same-sex desires or relationships were new; his findings revealed that sexual desire runs deeper than just sex. Foucault found that our desires reveal some fundamental truth about who we are and that we, as a society and as individuals, have an obligation to explore ourselves, find our truth, and express it. Within Foucault’s framework, sex isn’t just something we do. He instead argues that the kind of sex you have or desire to have become a “symptom” of your sexuality. Foucault focuses on the Victorian era, the time period when people began to move away from confession in the biblical sense to psychiatry as the main means of confession and guidance.

The ego represents reality. Focusing on Victor Frankenstein and the monster he created, one can better understand their personalities by examining the three parts of their subconscious; and determining parallels between the two characters.
Multimodal therapy is a systematic and comprehensive psychotherapeutic approach developed by Arnold Lazarus, a Clinical psychologist. While respecting the assumption that clinical practice should adhere firmly to the principles, procedures, and findings of psychology as an experimental science, the multimodal orientation transcends the behavioral tradition by adding unique assessment procedures and by dealing in great depth and detail with sensory, imagery, cognitive, and interpersonal factors and their interactive effects. A basic premise is that patients are usually troubled by a multitude of specific problems that should be dealt with by a broad range of specific methods (Corsini, R.J. & Wedding, D.,
