Reaction to Psychoanalytic Theory My reaction to the psychoanalytic theory is that the process takes many years before results can be seen. The other part to using the theory is that the client must be at a point in their life where they are willing to work on their issues of not only the present, but also of the past. Having a background in psychology, I have always thought the psychoanalytic theory had its place among the adult clients, but never considered it for children ages of five up to adolescence. As we talked in class it is best suited for adults, but it can be used with children. To see how this might work I read two articles that discussed using the psychoanalytic theory with children.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
