  Self Psychology in Depth - Amy Feld, PsyD
The overstimulated self is predisposed to recurrent states of excessive emotion or excitement as a result of unempathically excessive or phase-inappropriate responses from the selfobjects of childhood (E.S. Wolf, 1988).
The primary psychological task, for self psychology, is the maintenance of the self, and the relationships between the self and selfobject are at the center of development from birth to death (Tolpin, 1986).
Self psychology stresses that transferences are not the client's confusion of the therapist as a parent, but the client's legitimate need for a new selfobject in the present to his needs for structure building (Elson, 1986).

 What is Self Psychology
Psychoanalytic self psychology is the theoretical school of Heinz Kohut, MD (1913-1981), and provides the theoretical basis for most of the therapeutic benefits of contemporary psychoanalysis.
While rejecting the primary importance of innate Freudian sexual drives in the organization of the human psyche, self psychology was the first major psychoanalytic movement in the United States to recognize the critical role of empathy in explaining human development and psychoanalytic change.
Psychoanalytic self psychology contributes to our understanding of a wide variety of topics in psychology and the social sciences, as well as philosophy, humanities and religion.

 Self (psychology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Classics in the History of Psychology -- Calkins (1915)
And because the self is unemphasized in perception and imagination we are unlikely to find it by the modified experimental method which must limit itself mainly to the field of sensational experience.
To infer, for example, that a self must have been present in a previous recognition does not prove that the recognition was a experience of this self; yet only a self thus directly experienced can be dealt with in the psychology of recognition.
The self is accordingly foredoomed to perpetual exile from psychology.

 Self Psychology Psychoanalysis
From a substrate of the fragmented self, the urge to form an organisation is powerfully compelling.
Being threatened in the maintenance of a cohesive self because in early life they were lacking in adequate confirming responses ('mirroring') from the environment, they turned to self-stimulation in order to retain the precarious cohesion of their experiencing and acting self.
The authentic self - the child's own initiatives and his or her wishes to be mirrored and affirmed - is oppressed by an alien self based on the mother's narcissistic desires.

 Educational Psychology Interactive: Self-concept and self-esteem
By self, we generally mean the conscious reflection of one's own being or identity, as an object separate from other or from the environment.
Self-esteem is the affective or emotional aspect of self and generally refers to how we feel about or how we value ourselves (one's self-worth).
Seligman's (1996) work on explanatory style suggests that the intervening variable connecting self-esteem and achievement is the student's level of "optimism" or the tendency to see the world as a benevolent (good things will probably happen) or malevolent (bad things will probably happen).

 Psychology Track : Precollege Programs
Psychology focuses on the 'hows' and 'whys' of human behavior, whether external behavior (actions) or internal acts (thoughts, emotions), or even the underlying biology.
The purpose of this track is to begin a conversation about the self that directly addresses the philosophical dilemma, and, without necessarily resolving it (in other words, learning to live with ambiguity), examines the manner in which the self's dual role as subject and object influence the manner in which people feel, think, and behave.
While his research interests have been somewhat narrowly focused in the domains of impression formation (social psychology) and statistical power (quantitative methodology), more recently he has focused on issues of self and identity, specifically the degree to which identity complexity is influenced by education.

 Maslow's hierarchy of needs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is a theory in psychology that Abraham Maslow proposed in his 1943 paper A Theory of Human Motivation, which he subsequently extended.
Self actualization is a difficult construct for researchers to operationalize, and this in turn makes it difficult to test Maslow's theory.
While teaching organization psychology in a management program in Shanghai, China in 1981, he observed individuals there and found that their hierarchy of needs differed from Maslow’s Pyramid of Human Needs.
