A discussion of the self, both in and out of therapy.

For each of us, our thoughts, beliefs, desires, expectations, and fantasies constitute our own sense of a unique identity. Here, Jungian and relational psychoanalyst Jean Knox argues that this experience of self-agency is always at the heart of psychological growth and development, and it follows a developmental trajectory that she examines in detail, from the realm of bodily action and reaction in the first few months of life, through the emergence of different levels of agency, to the mature expression of agency in language and metaphor.

Knox makes the case that the achievement of a secure sense of self-agency lies at the heart of any successful psychotherapy, and argues for an updated psychoanalytic therapy rooted in a developmental and intersubjective approach. Drawing on a range of therapeutic disciplines—including interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, and developmental research—she proposes an integrated and flexible clinical approach that is based on the actual interpersonal agency of analyst and patient, rather than any one specific theory about the human unconscious being imposed on the patient by the analyst’s interpretations. Detailed clinical examples explore this approach.

Part of the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology, Self-Agency in Psychotherapy deftly balances theory and practice, offering practical applications for groundbreaking research on self-agency.

Chemical Biology is in the College of Chemistry and Biochem and MCB is in College of Letters and Science. From an admissions point of view, it's eeisar to get into College of Chemistry (lowest admission standard, altho you need to write your personal statement to cater to the major of your choice), but you are also stuck in that college (it's virtually impossible to transfer out). College of Letters and Science is the most competitive college on the Berkeley campus so it would be extremely difficult to get into Biochem or MCB, but you'll also have the freedom of declaring pretty much any major within the college without any hassle.Aside from admissions standards, I think the only major difference is really the college/department you'll be in and the people you end up hanging around. All the degrees have some flexibilities in them to allow you exploration of different coursework, so it is possible to study an identical set of courses whether you are in Chem Bio or Biochem or MCB, you may end up taking few more courses in one area instead of another, but the difference would not be significant. So if you are more of a chem person, then go with Chem Bio, if you are more of a life science person, then go with MCB or Biochem you'll get a feel for whether you like your classmates soon enough.As for the best major in terms of finding a job there is no guarantee what's hot now will be hot in 5 years. The market fluctuates and you never really know. My advice is to study something you like that you think you can live with for the rest of you life. Having a job in a field you hate really sucks, no matter how much you get paid (ask any lawyer in the top 10 firms in the US). Who knows, you may change your mind and not do anything biology related, then all this brain-picking would've been in vain.
