In this position, the child keeps the good and bad objects apart as separate people, even though they are actually the same person. This means that the child cannot develop the capacity for mature love - since this is based on loving a person as a whole, including their faults. Examples of paranoid-schizoid: 1. Borderline 2. Psychotic 3. Schizophrenic 1. Splitting In the earliest part of Freud's career splitting was repression of memories too difficult to face - a very important concept.

    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.
