Important Information: Final Exam: Next Week: Wednesday, Dec. 9 Will test all lecture notes and readings Three chapters from the book Back to Psychoanalysis Remember the final statement in the section on Cognitive Therapy: "Celebrate Yourself!!" This is based on a very important concept: "Self" and fully appreciating yourself. Donald Winnicott (1896 1971) One of the greatest psychoanalysts of all time. Object-relations theorists and a student of Melanie Klein. True vs. False Self This is a fundamental idea. Winnicott showed: we are all born a "purely true self." Your true self is completely authentically you!!! As a child you act completely authentically. If orange juice is spilt on carpet, infant starts to draw with the orange juice. The true self is outwardly productive, like a fountain. The true self is inherently creative. The true self always carries with it a feeling of aliveness, richness of experience . Whether the true self continues to develop, depends on responses from caretakers, society, etc.

    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.
