Anna Freud and the Ego Her father focused more on the unconscious id, but Anna put more emphasis on the Ego.

Biological unity between mother and child

A dependence on an object relation

The child finds a constant object to replace mother

The child is torn between good and bad feelings to a person

The phallic-oedipal stage

Latency period

The preadolescent prelude to the adolescent revolt

Adolescence

All structures of personality (The Id, Ego, Superego) are present by the end of the phallic stage. A typical person establishes balance by the age of 5, so by the latency stage, the person’s ego can defend from anxiety.

All structures of personality (The Id, Ego, Superego) are present by the end of the phallic stage.

A typical person establishes balance by the age of 5, so by the latency stage, the person’s ego can defend from anxiety.

“ Anna Freud claimed that all people will have their balance destroyed in adolescence.” - Richard M. Lerner Until…Adolescence WHY?

Until…Adolescence

Alteration in Drives Because of puberty, you grow adult genital drives, and therefore the balance is disrupted. Called developmental disturbance because it in universal and inevitable. Incest is unacceptable in most cultures, therefore, a defense against this must be formed, causing a personality change. “ The adolescent is necessarily involved ‘in dangers which did not exist before and with what he is not accustomed to deal. Since at this stage, he lives and functions still as a member of his family unit, he runs the risk of allowing the new genital urges to connect his old love objects, that is, his parents, brothers, sisters’” - Richard M. Lerner.

Called developmental disturbance because it in universal and inevitable.

Alteration in Ego Organization- The newfound drive causes the person much disturbance Leads to unpredictable behavior because the person tries all formerly useful defenses against the new urges Puts strain on the person because these formerly useful defenses are not as effective Develops defense mechanism- INTELLETUALIZATION Intellectualization = talking back to your parents. Using intellectual reasons to justify one’s behavior

The newfound drive causes the person much disturbance

Leads to unpredictable behavior because the person tries all formerly useful defenses against the new urges

Puts strain on the person because these formerly useful defenses are not as effective

Develops defense mechanism- INTELLETUALIZATION

Alterations in Object Relation The chance of accidentally acting on the newfound genital drives is so large, that… “ Nothing helps here except a complete discarding of the people who were important love objects of the child, that is, the parents.” - Anna Freud

The chance of accidentally acting on the newfound genital drives is so large, that…

And therefore causes….alteration in ideals and social relations Once having broken ties with parents, the adolescent has also changed all former ideals and views. Therefore- the adolescent is left without ideals or social ties. This causes the adolescent to find substitutes- friends. Can be justified, and the newfound genital drive (which is the cause for all the alterations) can possibly be dealt with in a way arguably less severe than incest.

Research Methods She based her research on her dad’s work. She worked as a teacher, therefore, has first hand observational experience with children Natural Experiments Long term study of patients- from childhood to adolescence. She encouraged pooling of information from all analysts

Natural Experiments

Long term study of patients- from childhood to adolescence.

She encouraged pooling of information from all analysts

Limitations of her work- Like her father, her work cannot be falsified. Her view on adolescents is very stereotypical! Not all of them are like that. “ Her work is an extensive theory and doctors regard clinical work over extensive theory therefore Anna Freud’s work isn’t that popular. Doctors prefer a simpler approach, but as we look into her theory, it’s clear that a too simple approach is inadequate.” -Edgcumbe

Like her father, her work cannot be falsified.
