Default Re: Dissociative Amnesia

Another perspective on amnesia would be to explore which of the individual's current life tasks are being avoided, and how the symptom might facilitate that avoidance. Alfred Adler offers a provocative view of symtoms in The Individual Psychology of Alfred Adler, Chapter 12, "The Dynamic Unity of Mental Disorders," pages 299-308, by Heinz and Rowena Ansbacher. Also, look at the quotes on "Safeguarding Tendency" at http://www.Adlerian.us/qu-safe.htm.
