Stavros Mentzos

The psychoanalyst, Stavros Mentzos, has, in a special way, worked on revealing the inner ambivalences of needs and the psychodynamic function regarding fears about needs. His diagnostic principle, that all behavioural abnormalities are a consequence of inner conflicts, is one example of many (which also exist in other psychological strands), that people can be sympathetically and appreciatively understood beyond the distinction between healthy and sick. Equally, Mentzos is also a master at seeing ‘the’ psyche as a dynamic process and conceptualising its patterns as solutions to challenges and excessive demands in the respective biographies.
