Review the assigned textbook readings and watch the brief video, Psychoanalytic Theory. As you read and watch the video, think of how the theories proposed by the neo-Freudians (Horney, Jung, Sullivan, Adler) are similar to or different from Freud’s theory.
Next, answer the following questions in your initial post to the discussion topic:
- What contributions did the neo-Freudians make to the field of personality psychology research that Freud did not?
- How do the research designs of the neo-Freudians differ from Freud’s research design?
- How did the neo-Freudians address ethics in their research? Do you feel that the studies of the neo-Freudians were in each case conducted ethically? Why or why not?
