    A psychodynamic understanding of any human being and, in our particular case, of a person who will eventually suffer from schizophrenia, requires that we study the following:

    1. The world which the child meets.

    2. The child’s way of experiencing that world, especially in its interpersonal aspects.

    3. The way the child internalizes that world and the effects of such internalization.

    4. The ways by which the sequence of later experiences weaken, reinforce, distort, neutralize, expand, or restrict the effects of the early experiences.
