A humorous way to learn about the Freudian defense mechanisms (actually elaborated by Anna Freud) of Displacement, Denial, Sublimation, Reaction Formation, and Projection. A little dream analysis thrown in. Who knows? Maybe Freud would have been good at tech support…(technically, this is a video version of episode 209).
In this actual fake recording we hear how Freud might have handled your call to an anonymous technical support service. Can you identify each of the following Freudian techniques in this episode?
There’s lots of talk about the DSM5 – the new version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. I put together this list of what I consider to be the better resources. Includes links to articles both critiquing and supporting the changes. Also: a downloadable PDF and two videos.
