Became a founder of child psychoanalysis Anna Freud's Ten Ego Defenses Separation-Individuation Theory Focused on the relationship between the mother and the child By Ashton Plusquellec, Kiera Grant, Lexy Goebel and Taylor Porter Anna Freud and Margaret Mahler
Child Developmental Analysts Developmental lines are Anna Freud’s term for a developmental sequence of id-ego interactions. As children grow, they outgrow their independence on external controls and gain an ego mastery of internal and external reality. Ego Mastery: The Ego’s Ability to Deal with Both Internal Drives and External Reality Developmental lines may be thought of as reliable sequences in the child’s maturation from dependency to relatively complete independence, from irrationality to rationality, and from passivity to activity. Ego mastery is the ego’s ability effectively to deal with both internal drives and external reality. The six developmental lines are:
1.From Dependency to Emotional Self-Reliance
2.From Suckling to Rational Eating
3.From Wetting and Soiling to Bladder and Bowel Control
4.From Irresponsibility to Responsibility in Body Management
5.From the Body to the Toy, and from Play to Work
6.From Egocentricity to Companionship Anna Freud expanded on the topic of her father’s (Sigmund Freud) ego defenses.
In 1936, "The Ego and The Mechanisms of Defense" introduced the principle of inner mechanisms that defend the Ego.
The book had three purposes
The first was to review the technical and theoretical developments that had taught analysts how to give equal consideration clinically to the id, ego and superego.
Secondly, to review the mechanisms her father had isolated and described and elaborate on them and summarize them.
Lastly, to incorporate her experience thus far with defense mechanisms.
Anna Freud found the ego’s defenses to be silent and invisible. The Mechanisms of Defense 1. REPRESSION (motivated forgetting)
1A. DENIAL (motivated negation)
2. ASCETICISM (renunciation of needs)
3. PROJECTION (displacement outward)
3A. ALTRUISTIC SURRENDER (sacrifice self)
3B. DISPLACEMENT (redirection of impulse)
4. TURNING-AGAINST-SELF (self-as-object)
5. REACTION-FORMATION (believing the opposite)
5A. REVERSAL (active into passive)
6. SUBLIMATION (acceptable substitutes)
7. INTROJECTION (taking within)
7A. IDENTIFICATION-WITH-THE-AGGRESSOR (adopting feared traits)
8. ISOLATION (stripping of emotions)
9. UNDOING (magical cancellations)
