Psychoanalysis of Charlie Sheen Behavioral Perspective Sheen could have been influenced in his behavior from an early onset due to his father Martin Sheen.
Sheen became an actor, just like his father and even starred in a movie with him.
Sheen and his brother both did not like their father, Sheen’s brother changed his last name too their mother’s maiden name. Sheen was obviously affected by his father’s lifestyle and his influence.
Sheen’s father was never very support and had some troubles with drinking, which could have caused Sheen’s later problems with cocaine and experimenting with drugs. Trait Perspective

Sensation Seeking Some Sheen Traits... Aggressiveness Assertiveness Defensiveness Dogmatism
Emotional Superiority Impulsivity Narcissism
Nonconformity Rebelliousness Risk Taking Selfishness Charlie’s real self vs. Ideal self clash
According to Rogers, the clach between the real and ideal selves can cause anxiety and neurotic behavior.
Ideal self: He believes he is successful, and leads a healthy lifestyle. He talks with confidence, even when he is saying something ridiculous.
Constant use of the word “winning” indicates that he believes he can do no wrong.
When asked if he is Bipolar, he said he was “bi-winning”.

Real Self: unhealthy amounts of partying, drinking, and drugs. Appears to prefer prostitutes than a real, functioning relationship.
Things that he says generally make no sense.
"Here's the good news. If I realize that I'm insane, then I'm okay with it. I'm not dangerous insane.“ –Charlie Sheen Real Self Vs. Ideal Self Lack of Unconditional Positive Regard: Acceptance no matter what you do.
His terrible behavior got him fired from “Two and a Half Men”.
Very concerned media
Negative feedback for his atrocious behavior
Sheen is not a fully functioning human due to his lack of unconditional positive regard
I believe that all this, along with the clash between his real and ideal selves creates a confusion within him, that makes his behavior even worse.
His coping methods, due to negative media, results in his manic personality, and bad habits. What made him this way? Focuses mainly on characteristics that make us uniquely human.

States that humans are independent, and are not simply fated to behave a certain way.

How humans experience the world, and how those experiences effect us.

Deals with the affect people’s life experiences can have on their personality. Humanistic Perspective Humanistic Perspective Sheen's behavior can be explained through possible childhood problems that that he tries to suppress
He does this through drugs and alcohol
Sheen's multiple sex partners can be explained by the primal sexual urges that he experiences
His multiple sex partners are also a way for him to feel security in his life Recap Sheen’s unconscious is the source of all of his problems
His suppressed conflicts create an irrational persona
Charlie Sheen’s rash behavior is a result of his experiences as a child, for example his father played a role in developing the many problems his son had.
The inner conflict he faces is due to his unconscious and dark memories The Unconscious The supporters of the psychodynamic perspective would agree that Charlie Sheen must have had some very painful childhood memories, that he either supressed, or does not remember at all.
This can affect how he behaves
Sheen had numerous family problems growing up
His brother kept his mother’s last name because he hated his father so much at the time (Emilio Estevez) Childhood Memories Charlie Sheen is a drug addict so he is focused more on the oral state of psychosexual stages, (For example his drinking, violence and drug issues)
Because he smoked cigarettes and drank, this created the problems that Sheen faces because he is stuck in the oral stage
His father sAaid once that mentally, charlie is still a kid, all because of the drugs and alcohol. Psychosexual Stages Psychodynamic Perspective Carlos Irwin Estevez is the man that everyone knows as Charlie Sheen. He is the son of actor Martin Sheen and artist Janet Templeton. He is a brother to three siblings, 2 boys and one girl. When he was young he and his family moved to Malibu. As a young child, Charlie was always interested in acting. His first appearance in a movie was at just 9 years old when he played a role in his father’s “The Execution of Private Slovik.” He then attended Malibu High School where he was a start player on the baseball team but was eventually expelled for his poor grades and attendance. Charlie Sheen was born on September 3rd 1965. His early film career included a role in Red Dawn in 1984 and a cameo appearance in Ferris Bueller’s day off. He starred in several low budget films until 1990 when he appeared in The Rookie along side his father. He later directed his first movie about life on mars and starred in many comedy films such as the Major League and Hot Shots, which helped establish him as an actor. He had a role on Spin City for two seasons and launched his own children’s clothing line. His most notable role was on Two and a Half Men for several years until his breakdown. The trouble began when he was charged with assault of a former girlfriend in 1996. In 1998 Sheen was hospitalized for overdose of cocaine. This violated his probation that he was on for former drug problems, landing him an extra year. In 2009 he was arrested for assaulting his wife Brooke Mueller. In 2010, Sheen caused $7,000 worth of damage at the Plaza Hotel. When police arrived he admitted to using alcohol and cocaine during this rage. Currently, Sheen is working on Anger Management (unfortunately, not the therapy, the show.) He’s also been doing on screen work with his father Martin. Martin’s health scare on set made Sheen realize how lucky he is to be able to work with his father like this. Sheen has told tabloids that he had a breakdown and many people thought he was weird or crazy but he was really just embracing his true self.
