This episode explains what defense mechanisms are and demonstrates how we use them to cope with pain and anxiety. These psychological strategies can be either beneficial or harmful to our lives depending on which ones we use, and how we use them. This video also shows the key differences and specifies which defense mechanisms are potentially destructive as well as healthy strategies we can use instead. I hope it is enormously helpful and transformative for you!
