Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Theorists of human personality have stated the importance of environment in the development of one's self-concept beginning at the earliest age. Mosak (Corsini, 1984) stated, in describing a basic assumption of Adlerian Psychotherapy, that all human behavior happens within a social context which has been established at birth and which requires reciprocal relationships of the individual. By necessity, adults must serve as the significant humans caring for the physical and emotional needs of a child. Adults influence the initial development of a child's personality. In describing .Jung's concept of psychic propensities, or archtypes, Kaufmann (Corsini, 1984) related that these potentialities in human personality are determined by the individual's particular culture, family, and environment.
