Lewis, a young and naive graduate who freshly took up the job of being the director for this play of mental patients replies by suggesting, ‘Love is not so important nowadays,’ and Roy questions him if he is ‘from another planet’. Throughout spending time with the mental patients and helping them get the play together, Lewis begins unravelling the stories and views of love from the other patients. For Julie love is about being ‘foolish’ and on the ‘edge’ it is important as it lets us be ourselves and brings happiness. Nowra placed Julie and Roy in the play to persuade Lewis to change his mind and from that we can see that Cosi does not support Lewis’s original view on the importance of love. However some characters such as Doug believe in the concept of ‘free love’ and that having is ‘solitude’ is better than

The difference Jung has with Freud’s theory of infantile sexuality and libido. Jung refused to accept that sexual instinct is the main psychological drive which led him to develop his own theory and therefore his own school of analytic psychology. The two characteristics of these theories I agree with are Alder’s four types of people and dream interpretation aided the treatment of patients. The two that I disagree with are Jung’s analytic psychology and Displacement is one of many defense mechanisms which are when a person is upset or angry with someone else and when he or she comes around other people they are still upset taking their anger out on people that had nothing to do with why she or he is
He discovered curing a client by positive suggestions such as “day by day, in every way, I am getting better and better.” Coue discovered that hypnosis will only be successful if the client believes that it will work. Those that are sceptical will not benefit. Sigmund Freud was impressed enough with hypnosis to adopt it into his treatment of neurotic disorders. It enabled the clients to remember events that had been forgotten and buried. However, he was developing his own psychoanalysis system and coupled with the difficulty he experienced hypnotising some patients, he abandoned hypnosis and concentrated on free association.
The problem that comes with preventive treatment and therapy for individuals suffering from schizophrenia usually falls to the individual accepting that they are suffering from a mental disorder and the financial aspect of the keeping up with the treatment and therapy. Borderline personalities usually do not seek mental health care to have their characters transformed; they want help for depression, anxiety, and problems in their work and family lives. But a psychiatrist, psychologist, or counselor can help make these patients more aware of how their patterns of behavior and thinking aggravate those symptoms and complicate those problems. (“The Harvard mental health letter,” 2006).

Shanice Addison General Psychology 1101 Deeper Exploration #4 April 1, 2013 The Truth behind the 10% Myth Over the years many people have developed theories on how they think the brain works, and the most popular one of them all is the idea that people only use ten percent of their brain. Yes, our brain is a complex and mysterious structure that process conscious and unconscious thoughts, but that doesn’t mean that we only use ten percent of our brain. The idea that we use ten percent of our brain is widespread between psychology students, well-educated people, and even some neuroscientist (Lilienfeld, Lynn, Ruscio, & Beyerstein, 2010, p. 21). Psychologists and neuroscientists have spent time and effort showing that this myth cannot be possible. The sources of this myth are word of mouth, desire for easy answers and quick fix, but most of all it was spread through misleading films and media portrayals (Lilienfeld, Lynn, Ruscio, & Beyerstein, 2010, p. 9).
While this can certainly be helpful to a therapist working with a client it cannot be taken for granted as there could be other explanations for the client experiencing problems which I would like to develop further. Even though Freud called the developmental stages psychosexual, the sexual does not actually have anything to do with sex but with receiving pleasure. So in the first stage approximately during the first 18 months of a child’s life he is experiencing everything through his mouth and the stage is therefore called oral. The baby gets a lot of pleasure out of sucking at the mother’s breast and we can see that babies of that age are putting everything into their mouths. Freud also believed that fixation to a developmental stage happens if that child gets either tool little of too much pleasure throughout the duration of one particular stage.
