Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Psychoanalysis

Answer: Sigmund Freud

Freud, sometimes called the father of modern psychology, introduced us to concepts such as ego, superego, id, libido and many more.

He developed a clinical tool called psychoanalysis to help people sort through all their inner conflicts.
2. Gestalt

Answer: Friz Perls

Mostly focused on how we perceive the world, this therapy aims to help people to become more aware of their perceptions and biases and proactively helps them to prepare for change.

Using an empty chair to project to, and speak with, parts of our inner self is one of the more familiar uses of Gestalt therapy.
3. Psychodrama

Answer: Jacob Moreno

Moreno, with his wife Zerka, created a method using improvisational drama and role play to help people understand their inner processes.

I was surprised to see that he developed this in the 1920s.
4. Behaviorism

Answer: B.F. Skinner

This therapy is mostly focused on behavior . Its most basic assumption is that whatever we do is a result of our conditioning or a natural reflex and that the amount of freedom accorded to humans is minimal.

Therapy is based on changing the conditioning to more appropriate behavior.
5. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

Answer: Aaron Beck

This therapy includes elements of behavioral therapy together with cognitive therapy to produce what is widely perceived as the most popular form of therapy in the early 21st century. It helps deal with thought distortions, limiting beliefs

Though it got a relatively late start (the 1960s) it has become a method of choice for many mental health professionals. In the 2010s, CBT has fostered a number of newer directions - there are at least fifteen other new therapies that claim CBT as their predecessor.
6. Logotherapy

Answer: Viktor Frankl

First coined in the 1920s by Viktor Frankl, logotherapy has continued to be in the forefront of empirical-based therapies.

Because it also includes a philosophy of the "human condition", it is quite easily merged with other therapies - including dynamic, CBT and others.
7. Client-centered

Answer: Carl Rogers

Perhaps the most important contribution of Rogers was the addition of empathy and unconditional positive regard as a necessary condition to successful therapy.

Rogers was also a pioneer in non-directive counselling.
8. Positive psychology

Answer: Martin Seligman

This school of psychology studies subjective experiences of the individual and what makes them feel good about themselves. This includes social ties and self-development as well.

This then carries over into therapy - helping the individual identify how to be happier in life.
9. Individual psychology

Answer: Alfred Adler

Alfred Adler called his psychology, "individual", to show the importance of a holistic approach as opposed to the ego structure approach of his teacher, Sigmund Freud.
10. Play therapy

Answer: Virginia Axline

Play is the "language" of children.

Axline described how to approach therapy with children through the use of their language, which is play. Even 50 years later, her book is considered a basic book for therapists working with children.
