Default Re: PTSD and Control Mastery

Control Mastery theory, based on Freud's later writings, emphasizes a child's urgent need to adapt to reality. His best strategy for doing this is to get along with his parents. Therefore he is motivated to maintain ties to his parents. He needs his parents for survival, safety, love, and security. In order to maintain these ties a child works to learn as much as possible about his parents. He infers the moral and ethical principles which govern his parents' lives, which they practice in relation to him, and which they expect him to practice in relation to them. A child must know his parents' whims, needs, and desires. He examines his parents closely in order to sort out what they want, expect, and will allow.
