Write a two to three-page paper (excluding APA title page and reference pages), comparing Freud, Mahler, and Adler. Compare and contrast the developmental models of Freud and Mahler; then, contrast these two developmental theories to Adler’s theory. Be sure to also address the following:
1. A brief description of each theory. Which perspective appeals to you more, and why?
2. What are some ways that the Adlerian approach can be applied to group counseling? What are some advantages of using a group format with this approach?
3. What concepts from these psychoanalytic approaches do you see as being potentially useful in your work as a nurse psychotherapist? Describe.
