Module Two Journal Template
First, you may want to revisit your submission for the Module One Journal assignment. Next, complete this template by replacing the bracketed text with the relevant information.
• Describe what a psychoanalyst like Freud or Jung would be looking for in the responses to a projective test like the Thematic Apperception Test. Your response should be 2 to 5 sentences in length.
• Using the lens of a psychoanalyst, reflect on your Module One Journal responses by answering the following questions in 2 to 5 sentences each:
o Describe what role your unconscious might have played in your responses. Are there any defense mechanisms present in your story?
o Describe how you characterized any underlying conflicts present in your story. Think about drives and the parts of personality (id, ego superego) in your response.
o Describe how you characterized the interactions of the people in your story. What could this tell us about attachment and relationships?
o Describe how much your own life experience informed the story you told.
• After considering the role of the unconscious and projection in the story you told, describe another interpretation for your image. Your response should be 2 to 5 sentences in length.
• Describe what a greater awareness of projection means for other interactions you might have with people in a social or professional setting. Your response should be 2 to 5 sentences in length.
