Psychodynamic Theories (i.e. ego psychology, object relations) are presented as a lens for understanding personality development and human behavior spanning across childhood and adulthood. Emphasis is placed on ‘unconscious drives’ and ‘early experiences’ as motivations for human behavior across the life course.
