Basic Needs to maintain Mental Health and
Personality Development:
 The Need to Communicate
• to validate reality and conveys an uderstanding of
feelings
• to develop self concept in relation to others
 The Need for Security
• an assurance survival promotes security
• Fear emergence when survival is threatened
• The infant’s security is related to satisfaction
of physical needs
• The infant must perceive love to feel secure
• how the person handles these
perceptions influences personality
development
The Need to Move from Dependency to
Independency
• If one is totally dependent on others,
security is severely threatened because
there is no deep assurance of survival if
such occurs
• The infant must first feel to be loved and
secured to be able to overcome problems
with the environment
• one these are met, the child is sustained in
the failures and hurts associated with
learning and dependence
• denial of the opportunity to learn or
frustration in the drive for independence will
produce emotional problems.
 The Need to develop Self Concept
• s.c. begins to develop in early infancy
• an integral part of s.c. is body image
• deeply learned perceptions of body image
stems from the attitudes of sig. others since
children view themselves as their loved
ones view them
• communication enhances the
development of self
• a person’s sense of self is the
basis of emotional stability; a
secure person has strength
and capacity for independence
and becomes less anxious
when circumstances require
the help of others
WHEN ARE BEHAVIORS
MALADAPTIVE? (Javierto
2005)
 when adaptive mechanisms are used singly
and repetitively
 inability to move from dependency to
independency
 Unable to substitute maladaptive behaviors to
adaptive ones
 failure to communicate
 unable to experience care and support during
early years development
 When the ego is constantly being threatened
and unable to compensate for it
 lack of opportunities to grow and to learn to
become independent
 distortions in the perceptions of self and
body image.

Why is there a need to develop adaptive


mechanisms?
 anxiety is the prime motivational factor for
maintaining a.m.( to relieve anxieties and
fears)
 to maintain a state of well being and
homeostasis
 maintaining the ego integrity
