1. Freudians emphasize that “personality” is shaped by early developmental experiences. However, the psychoanalytic approach to therapy assumes that adults can become aware of, correct, and mitigate the effect of some of these early experiences. Is this a contradiction? How is it resolved?
2. Do neuroimaging and brain-function recording technologies give support to the idea of the “unconscious”? Please, explain why and how.
3. One of Freud’s insights was that language processes are key to understanding the many ways “personality” expresses itself or “hides” (resistance). What did Albert Ellis’ REBT therapy add to this insight?
