Freudian Defense Mechanisms Part IV

Why Defense Mechanisms?

In Biology, a physiological reaction of an organism used in self-protection, as against infection.

But, in Psychology any of the various unconscious mental processes, including denial, projection, rationalization, and repression, that protect the ego from shame, anxiety, conflict, loss of self-esteem, or other unacceptable feelings or thoughts.

1) *Projection- Talked about that.
2) *Sublimation- Talked about that.
3) *Repression- Talked about that.
4) *Regression- Talked about that.
5)*Rationalization- Talked about that.
6) *Compensation- Talked about that.

This week:
7-Identification*
It is a process which may operate outside and beyond conscious awareness.
Hero worshiping by an individual is a sort of identification where an individual identifies himself/ herself with a popular hero/heroes .

Example:
Carlo during his curriculum’s as a student ; he got familiar with many theories and clinical practices such as: Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Erick Erickson, Jean Piaget, Victor Frankl, Bruno Bethlehem and Carl Rogers .
Then, later Carlo noticed that he has more passion, excitement, thrill, pleasure, and enjoyment for Carl Rogers.
Carlo has slowly identified himself more with Carl Rogers than others.
Identifying is not what Carlo decided to do.
It is more like a passion and an eagerness that he has had for an style and elegance of someone’s work.

You see that he did not decide about that; it is something that has happened; like an epiphany. It happens unconsciously without a person to decide about that.

8-Displacement*
An individual does something as a substitute for something else.
Displacement involves taking out our frustrations, feelings and impulses on people or objects that are less threatening.

Example:
Sara gets angry with her husband and cannot say anything to him, Sara beats her child.
Example 2:
Carlo have had a really bad day at work and then, he has gone home and taken out his frustration on family and friends.
Here Sara took it on her child, and Carlo took it on her wife.
Most of the people displace their aggression on something else.
