Identification Projection Series

Identification Projection Series refers to a projective technique used in psychotherapy. IPS is related to other, more established, projective methods in psychotherapy such as the Rorschach Test and the Thematic Apperception Test. A more recent projective method with a higher degree of validity is the Adult Attachment Projective Picture System. IPS is based on two sets of 40 pictures based on photographs. One set contains various possibilities of male and the other the female socialization. IPS is used to elicit emotional responses from a client. According to the principles of IPS, art is well-suited to elicit strong responses from a client because the works of art contain the psychological energies of the artist, which can be reproduced by the client through empathy. Another purpose of IPS is to increase the client's awareness of recurring themes throughout his or her biography; the IPS pictures can further assume a catalytic function during therapy. The pictures elicit emotional or physical responses, set in motion thought processes and may trigger identification, projection or other defense mechanisms.

The interpretation of the client's responses is aimed at the integration of unvoiced subjects and themes into therapy. The client is given the 40 cards and asked to sort them into two stacks: “meaningful” and “not meaningful”, according to the client's emotional and physical responses; the client is asked to review the pictures one by one. He is asked to focus on changes in mood or emotions during the viewing process. Pictures that elicit physical or emotional reactions or elicit a memory are placed onto the “meaningful” stack; the subset of “meaningful” picture is distributed into new categories: according to the current state in the therapeutic process, these can be: “past”, “present”, “future”. Basics for interpretation of results:A written protocol is required to interpret the responses; the following elements are protocolled: client's utterances regarding image content viewing duration duration of pondering upon the picture additional variables: change in breathing pattern, eye movement, skin color, facial expression, gesturesThere has been no reliable psychometric data collection and evaluation for IPS.

The qualitative analysis of the client's verbal responses can be conducted with the evaluation scheme by Lester Luborsky, Kurt Lewin or David McClelland. The analysis aims to make inferences of recurring themes in the client's biography and personality traits.

Eilenburg is a town in Germany. It lies in the district of Nordsachsen in the Free State of Saxony 20 km northeast of the city of Leipzig. Eilenburg lies at the banks of the river Mulde at the southwestern edge of the Düben Heath wildlife park; the town is subdivided into three urban districts: Berg and Ost and six rural districts named Behlitz, Kospa, Pressen and Zschettgau. Neighbouring towns and cities are Leipzig, Bad Düben and Wurzen. Eilenburg Castle was first mentioned on 29 July 961 in a document by Otto I. as civitas Ilburg. The name means town with clay deposits. A settlement of tradespeople developed from the 11th century in the vicinity of the castle; the town was incorporated in the Margravate of Meissen in 1386. In the 16th century Eilenburg was central to several events of the Protestant Reformation. George, Duke of Saxony, called this town a noteworthy place. Martin Luther called it a blessed lard pit; the Thirty Years' War left its mark on Eilenburg. The town was spared fighting, but it suffered from the catastrophic economic effects of the war.

From 1631 the town was directly involved in the war. In 1632 the body of King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden was laid out in the Red Deer Inn after he had been killed in the Battle of Lützen. In 1639 Eilenburg was conquered by the troops of Georg von Derfflinger. In 1646 peace negotiations between Saxony and Sweden began in Eilenburg to extend the expiring Armistice of Kötzschenbroda. On 14 September 1648 the Treaty of Eilenburg was signed and meant the end of the Thirty Years' War for Saxony, as a consequence the town recovered; the slow onset of economic recovery came to a sudden end with the start of the Seven Years' War. Each male in Eilenburg had to serve in the armed forces; the city was the Kingdom of Prussia. In the following years Eilenburg turned into an dirty old town. At the end of the 18th century the economy stagnated and Eilenburg became an more insignificant town. In 1813 during the War of the Sixth Coalition shortly before the Battle of Leipzig, Napoleon took a last view of his and his allies' Saxon troops in eastern Eilenburg.

After Napoleon's defeat, Saxony had to cede large territory to Prussia under the provisions of the Congress of Vienna. Eilenburg was part of the Province of Saxony within the progressive Prussian state. Thereby the transition of Eilenburg to an industrial city was advanced significantly; because of the founding of numerous textile factories, with its proximity to the Prussian capital Berlin, became an important centre of Prussian textile production. The ascent to an important industrial city came from the nearby Kingdom of Saxony. Saxon industrialists settled in Eilenburg for having duty-free access to the Prussian market; the onset of urbanization caused a rapid increase in population. The social tensions resulting from the industrialization and the huge growth of population triggered a strong labour movement. In 1849 the health insurance support association was founded. In 1850 the food association of Eilenburg as the first food cooperative of Germany and "Darlehnskassenverein" as the first Credit union in Germany were founded.

Carl Degenkolb, owner of a factory in Eilenburg and member of the Frankfurt Parliament, voluntarily instituted the first German works councils at his factory. On 30 June 1872 Eilenburg station was opened with the Halle-Eilenburg-Falkenberg route. Two years transport services started on the newly built Leipzig–Eilenburg railway. Industrial development continued with development of the chemical and metal processing industries; the German Celluloid Factory founded in 1887 characterized the city's business for more than a hundred years. During World War I hundreds of Eilenburg people were called up for military service. On 21 October 1917 Wilhelm Pieck a President of the German Democratic Republic, escaped from a military transport at Eilenburg station. A total of about 800 people from Eilenburg were killed during the war. About two weeks before the end of the World War II the city was completely destroyed. On 17 April 1945 American troops reached Eilenburg. For three days and three nights the town was under heavy artillery fire, which destroyed most of the buildings of the city.

Two hundred people were killed and 90 percent of the town centre and 65 percent of the buildings of the whole town were destroyed. Eilenburg was one of the most damaged cities in Germany; the town centre was rebuilt in the 1950s. In 1952 the city became the seat of the Eilenburg District in Bezirk Leipzig, newly formed by the administrative reform in East Germany. In the eastern part of Eilenburg large new housing areas were built. In autumn 1989 up to seven thousand inhabitants formed peaceful demonstrations demanding a change on political level. After German reunification some long-established state socialist companies went out of business. Dismantling of jobs could only be offset by new business settlements on newly created industrial areas outside the town. In 1994 Eilenburg District was annexed by Delitzsch District in the course of district reform. In 2002 Eilenburg was hit hard by flood of the river Mulde; the damages amounted to 135 million euro. The construction of flood protection facilities was intensified after the flood.
