AAdAAm Posted August 22, 2014 Share Posted August 22, 2014 I’m not sure why but I’ve always been fascinated by the more psychodynamic approach to the study of the mind. When I was in high school I wanted to become a Psychiatrist just so I could go and train to become a psychoanalyst in an either Jungian or Lacanian tradition. Fast-forward four years of undergrad and now I know that most psychodynamic theories have, for the most part, being discredited and are just relegated to the pages of History of Psychology books. The professors who are writing my letters of recommendation told me that unless I can modify or somehow “mask” my interest in psychoanalysis, my chances of making into graduate school are close to 0. Has anyone ever struggled with something like this? Like really falling in love with some very old-school (mostly discredited) ideas? Is there a way around this aside from just forgetting about it completely Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
