Jung and Adler, while initially closely aligned with Freud, later significantly departed from Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personality and counseling. In this weekâ€™s Discussion, you will closely examine two of these three theories with regard to how they are similar and dissimilar.
To prepare for this Discussion:
â€¢ Review the readings for this week.
â€¢ Consider how therapists might differ in their sessions when using these theories.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 a brief review that compares and contrasts two of the theories presented this week. In your review, be sure to address the following points:
â€¢ Key concepts/unique attributes
â€¢ Historical/contextual development of the theory (if relevant)
â€¢ Role of the therapist
â€¢ Research support for the theory
