Questions related to Relational Psychoanalysis
There are many psychotherapeutic schools and directions, whose therapeutic strengths lie mainly in the relationship between the therapist and the patient.
So is it possible to say that what is the most curative for the human being and what is best for maturation of man is the relationship itself?
I'm convinced that yes it is.
Freud is known to use the couch primarily for his own comfort and convenience also because he did not like to be looked at (Friedberg & Linn, 2012)

Do you still use Freud's couch as icon in your pscyhoanalysis sessions for the very same reasons?

This is my first time to do psychological testing and develop a scale and I guess I need help because I am confused. I have 300 cases and I used 5-likert scale on 40 questionnaires. I used Varimax rotation with .40 minimum for the factor loading. only 35 questions left after the data cleaning, 3 factors have very good Cronbach alpha between .87-.89, but one factor has .64 Cronbach alpha with 7 items and the other has .59 Cronbach alpha with 4 items only. When I do CFA (confirmatory factor analysis) for the 5 factors, *MLE=1.67, **RMSEA=.05, GFI=.85, NFI=.77, CFI=.90. Overall Cronbach alpha is .88. What do you think is the best thing for me to do with these results? Should I redo the factoring? Or delete the 4th and 5th factor or are these results ok because it's acceptable with the MLE and RMSEA? Thanks a lot... :D Your responses are greatly appreciated.
*MLE = X2/df (ML chi square/deg of freedom)
**RMSEA = Steiger-LIND RMSEA Index (non-centrality-based index)
