WHAT ARE THE APPLICATIONS OF ADAPTATIONAL PSYCHODYNAMICS?
Rado’s pioneering research in schizophrenia and his theory of “schizotypal organization” (schizophrenic-phenotype) paved the way toward contemporary psychiatric views of schizophrenia as a disease entity that exhibits the “interaction of genetics with environment in a specified developmental context.” Rado’s work seems best applied to psychiatric disorders whose correlates are more obviously mind-body related. His research in drug addiction and the addictive personality are significantobservations of mind-body interaction in addictive disorders.
Critics of Rado argue strongly that his biologically based adaptational view does not hold up within the more psychodynamic disorders, i.e.,
characterological disturbances and schizoid orientations.
Rado’s work is reflected quite clearly today in the understanding and application of biofeedback; sleep and dreams research;and in the continuing development of scientific methods to uncover mind-body relationships in psychiatric disorders that appear to have both genetic and physiologicalcorrelates.
