Summary/Abstract: The article is a review of the theories connected with psychoanalysis concerning the development of EGO in the internal psychological and relational aspects. The main concepts are presented - from classical Z. Freud to the modern thought of ISTDP. The importance of early childhood experiences for the functioning of EGO in adulthood was shown. The complexity of the problem is shown due to the internalized objects in the EGO-structure or the presence of Child-Parent-Adult states in it. The discussed theories indicate how much knowledge about the states, structure and process of development, including in relation to EGO  from childhood to adulthood, was evaluated.
