RAY Lecture 5 - THERAPY 21:45 ** DON’T WORRY ABOUT MODULE 55 FOR THE EXAM ** Review from Class: positive negative selective attention major depressive disorder manic Flat affect: act inappropriate or not act at all. The Psychological Therapies     Therapies o Psychotherapy involves an emotionally charged, confiding interaction  between a trained therapist and a mental patient. o Biomedical therapy uses drugs or other procedures that act on the  patients nervous system, treating his or her psychological disorders. o An Eclectic approach uses various forms of healing techniques depending  upon the clients unique problems. Psychoanalysis o The first formal psychotherapy to emerge was psychoanalysis, developed  by Sigmund Freud. o Got people to talk without judgment—patients sit on couch laying back and  he would sit behind them. o Aims: Since psychological problems originate from childhood repressed  impulses and conflicts, the aim of psychoanalysis is to bring repressed  feelings into conscioius awareness where the patient can deal with  them.   When energy devoted to id-ego-superego conflicts is released, the  patients anxiety lessens. o Methods: Dissatisfied with hypnosis, Freud developed the method of free  association to unravel the unconscious mind and its conflicts.

The patient lies on the couch and speaks about whatever comes to his  or her mind. Free Association: an example of the analytic method.  Freud would  bring ambiguous figures and wanted them to come up with a story for  them. Wanted to access the subconscious. Free association is a method for psychoanalysis. o Criticisms: Psychoanalysis is hard to refute because it cannot be proben or  disproven. Psychoanalysis takes a long time and is very expensive.
