Depth Psychological Approaches

Depth psychological approaches are based on the assumption that personality is largely influenced by unconscious processes and conflicts that originate from early childhood experiences. These approaches aim to uncover and resolve these hidden aspects of the self, and to promote psychological growth and integration. Some of the most influential depth psychological approaches are:

The psychoanalytical theory of Sigmund Freud, who proposed that personality is composed of three structures: the id, the ego, and the superego. Freud also introduced the concepts of psychosexual stages, defense mechanisms, transference, and free association.

The analytical theory of Carl Jung, who expanded Freud's theory by adding the concepts of collective unconscious, archetypes, psychological types, individuation, and synchronicity.

The individual psychology of Alfred Adler, who emphasized the role of social factors and inferiority feelings in personality development. Adler also introduced the concepts of lifestyle, social interest, birth order, and creative self.

The socially-oriented psychoanalytical theories, such as those of Karen Horney, Erich Fromm, and Harry Stack Sullivan, who focused on the impact of culture, society, and interpersonal relationships on personality formation and functioning.

The ego-psychological theory of Erik Erikson, who proposed a psychosocial model of personality development that consists of eight stages from infancy to old age. Erikson also introduced the concepts of identity crisis, generativity, and ego strength.
