Patterns of Conflict
Karen Horney- analyst of patterns of defenses
-argued that many people in our society suffer from
basic anxiety ; an 殿ll pervading feeling of being
alone and helpless in a hostile world�
-roots of anxiety in our culture, not childhood
-basic anxiety leads some to frantic pursuit of
various goals, more to deaden anxiety than for
themselves (ex. Seeking love, prestige/possessions,
withdrawing from genuine emotional involvements, or by
deadening anxiety with alcohol and drugs)
-these efforts fail but often persist into enduring
patterns of personality
-these pursuits create self perpetuating viscious
circle (ex. Unhealthy search for love)
