oMost likely for anxiety
oWomen are more likely to see a therapist than men

techniques from other types of therapists
Insight Therapy

oInvolves sessions 5 days a week for 3-5 years
oDevised by Freud
oThe objective is to uncover the original cause of the conflict by retracing the
stages of psychosexual development.
Bring the problem to consciousness so that the patient can gain insight and
re-experience painful emotions (repressed emotions)
Free Association
Dream Analysis (Manifest content vs Latent content)
oTransference: occurs when the patient expresses his feelings towards the analyst
in the way that the patient actually feels toward other important people in their life
oProjective Tests:
Involve the presentation of vague or ambiguous stimuli
A) Rorschach: Ink Blot Test
B) Thematic Apperception Test (TAT)
- Psychodynamic Therapies
oAltered version of Freud’s theory, kept the unconscious part of it.
oInterpersonal psychotherapy
oInstead of focusing on childhood problems, focuses on present problems
Behaviour Therapy

to ‘unlearn’ these associations
