    Forensic psychology is a discipline that applies psychological principles and theories to the law and justice system, especially as they relate to criminal behavior and solving crime (Gudjonsson, Haward, 1998, p. 14). It is sometimes confused with forensic science as the two are closely related, but there are also many differences; namely, forensic psychologists investigate psychological perspectives and apply them to the criminal justice system. Contrarily, forensic psychologists often deal with legal issues, such as competency issues, new legislation, public policies, and assessment of wheth

    In the analysis of an individual there are three primary methods employed in order to successfully assess and repair his condition- biological, cognitive, and psychoanalytic theory. In the case of narcissism, only the psychoanalytic approach will suffice to structurally repair rather than suppress manifest symptoms of the unfulfilled self. Narcissists must learn to address the needs of their childhood that have not have been satisfied and acknowledge them as the root of their grandiose actions, a facade for their inner sense of shame and insecurity (Kohut, 1978, p. 423)

    Abstract The concept of abnormal and normal personalities is debated consistently, however this essay will examine the sense in which it is justifiable to adopt this concept. Through psychodynamic, behavioural and humanistic approaches to personality foundations it will become evident that the moulding of one’s personality begins at the very early stages of childhood. In particular, fixations during phases of psychosexual stages and their developing repercussions on the id, ego and superego are evidence within psychodynamic studies to support this claim. What con

    The creation of a new psychotherapeutic method by Freud has been a long process, filled with many changes. However, psychoanalysis establishes itself firmly in the field of Psychology and has been used by many of the practitioners ever since. Its goal is to explore one’s mind in order to understand one’s personal conflicts and emotional problems. Even today, the way Freud treated most of his patients remains obscured. Apparently before the creation of classical analysis, it was an intuitive and unsystematic way of working. However, Freud avoided using hypnosis, viewing it as a “mystical

    Discussion On Classical Conditioning As An Explanation Of Learning We use the term classical conditioning to describe one type of associative learning in which there is no contingency between response and reinforcer. This situation resembles most closely the experiment from Pavlov in the 1920s, where he trained his dogs to associate a bell ring with a food-reward. In such experiments, the subject initially shows weak or no response to a conditioned stimulus (CS, e.g. the bell), but a measurable unconditioned response (UCR, e.g. saliva production) to an unconditioned
