Defense Mechanisms Extra Credit
Projection is when people "project" unwanted emotions like anger and attribute it to another person. An example would be blaming someone else for your failures.
Dad, you're the reason why I'm doing poorly in school.
Repression is a mechanism from the ego that pushes unwanted thoughts into the unconscious. An example would be pushing an embarrassing memory away from our consciousness.
I don't remember any bad memories from middle school.
Denial is when we block certain events from our awareness if we can't handle it. Someone can exhibit denial when they refuse to see a doctor because they believe they are in pain.
Do you have any concerns about your health?
No, I'm perfectly healthy.
Displacement happens when we satisfy our impulses through another object. An example would be throwing something when we feel frustrated with something else.
This homework was difficult so I threw my pen in anger.
Regression occurs when we revert back to habits from a previous time while dealing with stress. A student may show regression when they rock back and forth under stress.
Sublimation occurs when we convert our impulses into a socially acceptable activity. An example would be taking up weight lifting to deal with anger.
