The Neo-Freudian psychologists
were those followers of Sigmund Freud
who accepted the basic tenets of his theory of psychoanalysis
but altered it in some way. Jung
, for example, de-emphasised the sexual nature of the libido
and emphasised archetypes
; Erik Erikson
came up with de-sexualised stages of development roughly correlating to Freud's psychosexual stages
