Psychodynamic Theorist Presentation

Create a 10- to 12-slide PowerPoint® presentation that discusses Freud, Erikson, and two other psychoanalytic or neo-psychoanalytic theorists. Note that the 10-12 slide minimum does not include your title slide, introduction and conclusion slides or reference slide(s).

Discuss the following in your presentation:

  • Why was Freud’s work so influential?
  • How did the analysts that followed Freud dissent from his viewpoint?
  • What links the theorists in the psychoanalytic theory group?
  • What are three or more psychoanalytic concepts relevant to today’s culture? Explain their relevance and provide a specific example of each concept.

Make sure that the presentation uses 3 sources: the text, a peer-reviewed journal article, and one other source of your choosing.

Make sure that the bulk of the information in your presentation is contained in the notes section.  Your slide itself should follow the 6:6 rule (no more than 6 bullet points per slide, with 6 words per point).

Format your presentation according to APA guidelines, including using appropriate citations in both the notes section and on the slide itself if.
