The psychodynamic approach to psychopathology
1 Sigmund Freud came up with the approach that ignores science and tries to focus on getting in a person's head
1.1 This approach includes theories that explain human behaviour due to drives and forces (subconcious)
1.1.1 Our behaviour and feelings are most effected by unconscious motives
2 Adult behaviour and feelings (psychological problems also) start from our childhood experiences.
3 Behaviour is determined and has a cause (an unconscious one)
4 Personality is made of three parts
4.1 ID
4.1.1 Behaviour is motivated by two drives that are instinct and come from ID
4.1.1.1 Eros (sex drive and life instinct)
4.1.1.2 Thanatos (the aggressive drive and death instinct)
4.2 Ego
4.3 Super-ego
5 Parts of unconscious (id, super-ego) mind are always in conflict with conscious part of the mind (ego)
6 Personality made as drives are changed by life experiences in childhood, during psychosexual development
