What is #psychodynamic theory?

A view that past effects present, #unconscious motives guide behavior, relational patterns repeat over time, dreams are interesting, catharsis is healthy, morality is good, infancy/childhood is important & ppl use ucs. coping skills aka #defenses.
Defense mechanisms exist on a spectrum of adaptation with people using immature, neutral, and mature defenses at different times in different frequencies. More frequent use of immature defenses is not good - links with all sorts of psychopathology & ppl may not love hanging out.
What are mature defenses? They link with different measures of success, life satisfaction, happiness, & the absence of psychopathology:

Bezig in Ik Was Een Van Hen van @zeegersmaarten [2016]. Interessant boek over zijn undercover periode in het islamitische deel van de Schilderswijk / Transvaal.

Een aantal indrukwekkende passages:

"Volgens officiële statistieken is 90% allochtoon en 75% moslim." #ikwaseenvanhen Ik was een van hen van Maar...
@zeegersmaarten "De Oostenrijkse immigratiewet is even streng als die in NL, maar alleen van toepassing op eigen onderdanen. Voor anderen geldt de soepelere EU-wetgeving. In e praktijk betekent dat dat ik ik met Sarah overal mag wonen, behalve in eigen land. Maar na een half jaar in O. hebben
@zeegersmaarten we 'Europese rechten' opgebouwd., waardoor de eisen voor gezinshereniging vervallen. Zelfs de leges van verblijfsvergunning hoefden we niet te betalen."

Daardoor konden ze dus in NL wonen zonder aan de NL regelgeving voor meegenomen partners te hoeven voldoen. Een sluiproute.

A Professor started his class on a very serious Topic. The moment he turned towards the blackboard, one of the students whistled. He turned, looked at the class and asked the Whistler's name. No one answered.
The Professor peacefully kept the Pen in his pocket saying: "Lecture ends here. I'll tell you a story to utilise the remaining time".

Everyone became interested.
"Yesterday night I tried hard to sleep, but it was miles away from my eyes, so I thought I'd better get petrol in my car, which will save my time next morning and might induce sleep.

Remedy for severe headache #Humor

A MAN went to a Doctor suffering from a severe headache for years on end.

The doctor said, “Joe, the good news is I can cure your headaches. The bad news is it will require removing your testicles"
“You have a rare condition which causes your testicles to press on your spine, and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.”

Joe was shocked but he knew he had no choice but to go under the knife.
When he left the hospital, he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, and he truly believed he could make a new life.

He saw a men’s clothing store and thought, “That’s what I need ... a new suit.”

A popular bar had a new robotic bartender installed, who could not only serve drinks efficiently but also converse with the customers intelligently on a variety of topics.
A guy came in for a drink and the robot asked him,
"What's your IQ?"
The man replied, "160."
Robot said: "hmm, Scientist?"
Man replied: Yup, "Astrophysicist"
So the robot proceeded to make conversation about the Grand Unified Theory of Universe of Stephen Hawking while serving him drinks.

The man listened intently and exclaimed, "This is absolutely great"

A couple was celebrating 50 years together. Their three kids, all very successful, agreed to a Sunday dinner in their honor.
”Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad,” gushed son number one.
‘Sorry I’m running late. I had an emergency at the hospital with a patient,you know how it is, and I didn’t have time to get you a gift.”

“Not to worry,” said the father. “The important thing is that we’re all together today.”
Son number two arrived and announced, “You and Mom look great, Dad. I just flew in from Los Angeles between depositions and didn’t have time to shop for you.”

“It’s nothing,” said the father. “We’re just glad you were able to come.”

One day an Irishman, who had been stranded on a deserted island for over 10 years, saw a speck on the horizon.

He thought to himself, "It's certainly not a ship."
As the speck got closer and closer, he began to rule out even the possibilities of a small boat or a raft.

Suddenly there strode from the surf a figure clad in a black wet suit.
Putting aside the scuba tanks and mask and zipping down the top of the wet suit stood a drop-dead gorgeous blonde!

She walked up to the stunned Irishman and said to him, "Tell me, how long has it been since you've had a good cigar?"

"Ten years," replied the amazed Irishman.
