Defenses are mental operations that restore or maintain psychic equilibrium when people feel that they cannot manage emotions that stem from conflict; they remove components of unpleasant emotions from conscious awareness. For example, using sex, food, or hostility to relieve tension—that’s a defense—catalogued here as entry number sixty-eight: Impulsivity. Screaming at someone can be a defense. Playing golf can be a defense. So can saving money. Or at least all of these activities may involve defenses. In this audiobook, Blackman catalogs 101 defenses—the most ever compiled—with descriptions practical for use in everyday assessment and treatment of psychopathology. He explains how to detect and interpret a defense and offers supportive therapy techniques. The many practical tips interspersed throughout this audio make it an excellent reference tool for students and experienced clinicians, and allows all listeners to experience how psychological defenses operate in everyday life.
