The Structural Approach in Psychological Testing covers the basic concepts for various types of personality or for the specific relationships of treatment possibilities to personality disturbances. The book describes the structural approach in psychological evaluation and its relation to developments in psychology in general and clinical psychology; the psychoanalytic foundations of the structural theory; and structural concepts in test analysis and personality description. The text also discusses the structural concepts to schizophrenia in developing the theoretical framework of schizophrenia as faulty ego synthesis, as well as the structural approach using case materials. The vacillation between reality and psychosis and the system of warding off confusion are also encompassed.
