The Nature of Normal and Abnormal Functioning The psychodynamic approach views abnormal behavior as resulting from a conflict among the various parts of the personality. Conflicting demands of the id, the ego, and the superego produce anxiety that the individual seeks to reduce or eliminate. If the individual can cope with the anxiety realistically, the conflict is solved and the anxiety eliminated. If, however, the stress and consequent anxiety remain, the individual resorts to ego-defense mechanisms that distort reality.
