I. The Psychological Therapies Q. What are the aims and methods of psychoanalysis and psychodynamic therapy? Those influenced by the psychoanalytic perspective try to help people gain insight into unconscious origins of their  disorders and to work through the accompanying feelings. To do so, a therapist may draw on techniques such as free association  and dream analysis, and interpret resistance and the transference to the therapist pf long-repressed feelings. Traditional  psychoanalysis, which is no longer practiced widely, is criticized for assuming repression, for after-the-fact interpretations, and  for being time-consuming and costly. The more common psychodynamic therapy is influenced by the psychoanalytic perspective’s  concern for providing insight into childhood experience and defense mechanisms. But offers a briefer treatment form and often  incorporates other techniques into the therapy sessions. Q. What are the basic themes of humanistic therapy, such as Roger’s person-centered approach? Unlike psychoanalysts, humanistic therapists focus on clients’ current conscious feelings and on their taking  responsibility for their own growth. Rogers, in his client-centered therapy, used active listening to express genuineness,  acceptance, and empathy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
