Chapter 18 Lecture Notes
Psychological Disorders and Psychotherapy
Make sure you take a look at history of psychotherapy.
So what about ppl that are possesed? Do they have schizophrenia? & if they do have schizophrenia,

Insight Therapies
So every therapy except for maybe one major therapy has the same key principle: that is
Making aware that which you are not aware of OR bringing the unconscious to the conscious.
So this also depends on how you describe unconscious.

So, all major therapies including behaviour therapy has this as a major goal: exposing you to that you
are afraid of or something that causes fear or anxiety to you.

Psychoanalysis:
t one good thing about this therapy is that ppl that want to become psychoanalysis therapists t they
have to undergo 2 years of psychoanalysis themselves [this is good in a way b/c sometimes ppl go into
therapy [trying to be a therapist] to avoid looking at their own problems]

Freud thought that any attempt that the client made to prevent them from moving forward. He said

Chapter 18 Lecture Notes
e.g. a patient gets into an accident while driving to therapy - & you say that they unconsciously
sabotaged themselves so that they wouldn't come to therapy t which is a guaranteed way of pissing off
the client

Transference t if used properly, is a powerful tool & if used improperly t ][ou}]vµo]vP
In classic psychoanalysis t the theory is that therapist is a blank screen. The idea is that the therapist is a
blank screen; doing nothing aside from helping the client - & the patient starts getting angry or
conversly, they start falling in love with their therapist.

old baggage [usually related to their parents] onto the therapist; they are relating to them as they
would relate to their parents in the past as a child = TRANSFERENCE.
Good therapists recognize that the fact is that the therapists do t they do things in therapy; they are not
neutral or a blank screen, if they were, then they would be pretty ineffective.
= everything they [therapist] do could potentially cause a reaction in the patient & they could react to
the therapist. [& not b/c they were projecting on their therapist]
