▪ transfering phenomenon- while they’re free associating they transfer these emotions and attitudes to the analyst themselves ▪ recognize through the analyst to themselves as if they’re relating to people in the past ▪ usually parents but any important person from your childhood ▪ during transference analyst hits at the nub of the problem in abreaction ▪ he or she may become emotional and cry or be angry ▪ the patient is reliving their past tension provoking experience ▪ analyst has to pick up on that ▪ he’ll make an interpretation ▪ after interpretation- the patient will resist and deny the reason and be upset with the analyst ▪ as patient resists the analyst becomes more confident that he is correct ▪ since resistance is to keep unconscious conflicts hidden from awareness ▪ Karl yune ▪ freud viewed him as his heir ▪ yune had his own theory ▪ we have a fundamental motivation for self realization ▪ finding unity and connecting all aspects of your personality to find that balance ▪ he kept unconscious processes and categorized them as the personal unconscious ▪ how did we get to self realization ▪ he didn’t talk about stages ▪ reach unity ⁃ difirentiation ⁃ integration ▪ the collective unconscious- inherited aspect of our unconscious that connects us to everyone throughout history ▪ anima- feminine component of the male psyche ▪ animus- masculine component of female psyche ▪ as individuals we have to differentiate there is a masculine aspect of my unconscious ▪ if i deny that side that aspect of my personality is primitive underdeveloped and one sided personality ▪ to achieve self unity- we need to integrate both forces in our lives ▪ when you integrate these forces you become incorporated with the broader cosmos- for this theory you need to reach self realization ▪ we work toward and strive towards reaching the ideal goal ▪ trying to step away from sex and aggression ▪ alfred adler ▪ society for individual psychology ▪ focus on individual as a whole ▪ nature vs nurture ▪ had chronic illness throughout childhood and 5 siblings ▪ why so many rivalries why is it happening to him ▪ organ inferiority like a bum leg- sense of inferiority comes from young insecurity ▪ life goal is to compensate that feeling ▪ in real life you create proactive ideas ▪ fictional finalisms ▪ the style of life- the means towards the end- how you get to fictional finalisms ▪ life based on changes to reach goals ▪ person to person ▪ goals are proportioned ▪ way you go about the goal is the way you were raised ▪ if you were neglected you work hard and if spoiled may not work for fictional finalism ▪ humanistic perspective- it’s not just psychosexual it’s me i can determine my future ▪ the creative self ▪ you are the author of your life ▪ even acting as if something is possible ▪ working class people unlike yune and freud ▪ adler came up with compensary motivation- work on weaknesses ▪ freud said motivation is about logic
