With help from Anna Freud!
Regressions is where an individual may revert to an earlier stage of development, typically in response to stressful events,
Such as a child wetting his pants out of nervousness
Rationalization is where a person will find a logical reason for a topic to seem less threatening
For example, someone who cheats on a test believing it will e okay for them in the long run
Where one refuses to accept a fact or truth, denying the reality of a circumstance.
When unpleasant emotions such as anger are displaced onto a different subject in a fair way
Such as using a punching bag to relieve stress
Where one redirects and places pent up unpleasant feelings like frustration and anger onto a different subject
For example: yelling at family members after a bad day at school.
