psychlogy 216 psychodynamic theories

Review the assigned textbook readings and watch the brief video, Psychoanalytic Theory. As you read and watch the video, think of how the theories proposed by the neo-Freudians (Horney, Jung, Sullivan, Adler) are similar to or different from Freud’s theory.

Next, answer the following questions in your initial post to the discussion topic:

  • What contributions did the neo-Freudians make to the field of personality psychology research that Freud did not?
  • How do the research designs of the neo-Freudians differ from Freud’s research design?
  • How did the neo-Freudians address ethics in their research? Do you feel that the studies of the neo-Freudians were in each case conducted ethically? Why or why not?
