Applying Psychodynamic Theories

When thinking of classic Freudian techniques, what images come to mind? Perhaps the omniscient Freud smoking a pipe, sitting behind a client, passively taking notes– or a troubled client lying sprawled on a couch speaking about their sexuality or early experiences in dealing with aggression or angst. 

Though many associate all psychodynamic theories with well-known images of Freudian psychoanalysis, the works of Jung, Adler, and other prominent psychodynamic theorists took strides to significantly depart from Freud’s theory of personality and counseling. Like humanistic theories, modern psychodynamic approaches place the counselor across from the client, actively engaging them in the counseling process. During this process however, counselors place much focus on the unconscious mind and past relationships of the client– a focus unique to psychodynamic theories. 

In this Discussion, you continue to explore unique interventions and strategies derived from the psychodynamic theoretical approach. You then apply one theory, Psychoanalytic, Jungian Analytical, or Adlerian, to facilitate your interventions with Deidre.

Posting Directions: In the subject line of your post, use the following title format: “Title of Discussion: the theory you selected for this Discussion”. Your initial post must be at least 200 words in length.

Post by Day 3 a brief description of the psychoanalytic theory you selected. Then, based on this theoretical approach to describe two interventions you could employ with Deidre and explain why. Finally, explain how each of these interventions would help Deidre move toward her goals.

Respond by Day 5 to at least two of your colleagues using one or more of the following approaches:

  • Share additional insights to help your colleagues apply their theories in a different way.
  • Provide feedback on how your colleagues’ interventions would help the client move toward her goals.
  • Provide additional interventions for your colleagues to consider.
