As a psychology student, you have learned a great deal about the field, and you enjoy discussing it with family and friends. During one conversation, you mention the psychanalytic (or psychodynamic) approach, which was founded by Sigmund Freud about a century ago, and tell him how it explains certain psychological disorders.
Your Uncle Charlie shakes his head and says, “Come on, give me a break. That sounds like a bunch of nonsense!”
How would you explain to Uncle Charlie – using resources and examples – the theory behind this approach, and why this approach can be an effective form of therapy?


-You must also use at least three outside sources, but you must be careful to cite your sources so that you avoid plagiarism.
-The sources should be given within the essay so that the reader knows clearly which information is from which source.
-When giving the sources, you must provide enough information for the reader to find the citation. So writing “The New York Times” is not enough. You may provide a hyperlink to the web page you are citing from or give the name of the article, the author’s name, the date (if one is given), and where the article was published.
-Additionally, the material that you quote directly should make up no more than 30 percent of your essay answer. This means that you do “most of the talking” and use the citations to support your assertions.
