the child independent

Afterward, when the child is independent, they realize that the mother and child bond is a deferent entity, thus telling that the child has lost something when they separate with the mother. Therefore, the child becomes dependent on others later on in their life, thus losing the idea that they are independent (Fonagy 2010). In the case of Maria, she depended on her current boyfriend as solace and comfort after she was giving him details of her past life and how it has affected her present life. With this realization of dependence when the child thinks they are independent, there is a creation of a difficult period that often brings anxiety, depression, and frustration to the child (Diamond 2008). Because Maria is grown up, she uses transitional objects such as illusions, symbols, and objects later in life to replace the childhood transitional objects such as dolls and teddy bears.
Consequently, according to (Segal 2018), she substantiates the claim that the development of a child on the relationship with objects is based on two internalized set of relations in that both can be positive and negative. This object relation is linked between the self-representation, the object representation, and their emotion. Melanie Klein bases her theory on Sigmund Freud who developed the psychodynamic theory that describes the person’s level of awareness, thoughts, and feelings can affect a person’s actions. According to (Kline, 2014), the use of psychodynamic therapy helps patients to understand their feelings of depression, decision making, and concentration and apathetic behavior.
