Emotions and memory by David Rapaport( Book )

"Today the interest in the relationships between psychoanalytic and experimental findings, as well as in the experimental validation of psychoanalytic propositions, is greater than ever before. This monograph is a summary of the successes and failures of such endeavors. It provides both warnings and hints. The sections of this volume on the theory of emotions, the psychoanalytic theory of memory, and the psychopathology of memory are, in spite of many limitations, still the sole systematic treatment of these fields."

Diagnostic psychological testing; the theory, statistical evaluation, and diagnostic application of a battery of tests by David Rapaport( Book )

55 editions published between 1945 and 1967 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The diagnostic use of the word-association test, the Rorschach test, and the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) are discussed in this volume, approximately 60% of the book being devoted to a detailed analysis of findings obtained in various clinical groups with the Rorschach test. The word-association test results are analyzed with reference to popular reactions, close reactions, distant reactions, reaction time, responses to traumatic as opposed to nontraumatic stimulus words, and a comparison of responses originally elicited by a stimulus word with responses elicited on a second administration of the test. The TAT is treated largely qualitatively. Trends appearing in the TAT that are of diagnostic importance for several clinical categories are reviewed. In the discussion of the Rorschach test, the scoring and interpretation follow the basic schema proposed by Rorschach, though a number of refinements in scoring are introduced. This test seems to provide the best single diagnostic tool of the battery employed. For ready reference, diagnostic analyses are given in which individual cases are summarized with a notation of the Rorschach signs pointing to the diagnosis finally made for each patient.

Diagnostic psychological testing. the theory, statistical evaluation and diagnostic application of a battery of tests by David Rapaport( )

7 editions published in 1945 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The material presented here is the outgrowth of cooperation of clinical psychologists and psychiatrists over several years. It is intended to be a factual summary of the concentrated use of the most recent and most advanced testing procedures which psychology has to offer clinical psychiatric work. It is hoped it will represent a step forward in the systematization of those principles of the psychology of thinking which are part of the necessary background to a proper qualitative evaluation of these tests. Our aims have been four-fold: 1. We have attempted to show how the tests were welded in our clinical work into a single diagnostic tool. 2. We have attempted to validate those of the tests which have already been put to general clinical psychological use, but for which no systematic clinical validation has been offered in the past; and to develop into easily handled diagnostic indicators some of their neglected characteristics, which have been found useful in our clinical work and experience. 3. We have attempted to put to general use some of these tests which were hitherto used only in the study of specific groups of cases. With these tests our effort was to develop them into tests of general diagnostic use by designing and validating new scoring and new interpretation criteria. 4. We have attempted to develop a psychological rationale for each of these tests and for the different types of responses on them; because without such a rationale the tests and test results must remain meaningless to the psychiatrist, and a matter of automatic procedure and mechanical comparison to the clinical psychologist. The research population included clients with schizophrenia, preschizophrenia, paranoia, depression and neurosis--Intro. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

Ego psychology and the problem of adaptation by Heinz Hartmann( )

16 editions published between 1939 and 2011 in English and German and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The publication of a complete English translation of Heinz Hartmann's essay, "Ego psychology and the problem of adaptation," inaugurates the Monograph Series of the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. This project was conceived several years ago, but its initiation has had to await the availability of a psychoanalytic work of exceptional merit and importance. The editors believe that the appropriate occasion has finally arrived. "Ich-Psychologie und Anpassungsproblem" was first presented in 1937 before the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society and then published in German in 1939 in the Internationale Zeitschrift fèur Psychoanalyse und Imago. Historically it represents a turning point in the development of modern psychoanalytic theory. It is a natural sequel to Freud's previous formulations of the structural hypothesis and his contributions to ego psychology. With its appearance there began an evolution in psychoanalytic thought which continues to ramify and the full implications of which for theory and practice are not yet fully realized. To readers intimately acquainted with current psychoanalytic ego psychology, this essay will reveal the first formulations of some of its basic concepts. Many of them will have a ring of familiarity, because of the remarkable degree to which Hartmann's ideas have shaped, and become assimilated into, current psychoanalytic thinking. One becomes aware of the tremendous impact of his theories when one finds that it was in this essay that concepts such as the undifferentiated phase, the conflict-free ego sphere, conflict-free ego development, and primary and secondary autonomy were developed for the first time. Hartmann discusses the role of endowment and of the inborn ego apparatuses and their adaptive nature. The idea that ego defenses may simultaneously serve the control of instinctual drives and the adaptation to the external world finds its expression in this essay. Hartmann's concept of adaptation is in no way restricted to the "cultural" sense of the term. It is a truly inclusive conception, and he views it as an ongoing process, which has its roots in the biological structure, and with many of its manifestations reflecting the constant attempts of the ego to balance intrasystemic and intersystemic tensions. The implications of his theory for the development of perception and thought processes, the concepts of ego strength, ego weakness, and of normality, are also discussed. Neutralization, and the impact of this construct on the concept of sublimation, evolves quite naturally from this paper. One sees in this work a systematic attempt to establish within the framework of a psychoanalytic ego psychology the groundwork for a theory of human behavior in general, normal as well as abnormal. The great sweep of Hartmann's exceptionally rich intellect has made it possible for him in this task to integrate the whole field of psychoanalytic knowledge with the related fields of biology, psychology, sociology, and philosophy. The opportunity to read this essay will reintroduce psychoanalysts to a cardinal requirement of the scientific method which Dr. Hartmann's work demonstrates, namely his unswerving insistence upon precision in methodology, and upon logical consistency of theory. With it all, the rarified atmosphere of theory is flavored by a humanistic tolerance and understanding, which is discernible in his discussions of rational and irrational behavior, automatism and mechanisms of integration"--Preface.
