modern psychology & the dharma 3: alternatives to repression, denial & avoidance

December 22nd, 2015 · Comments

This is the third in a series of self-contained talks covering some of the major ideas of modern psychology and how they intersect with the insights of the dharma. 

This talk introduces some of Anna Freud's ideas about defense mechanisms—repression, denial, deflection, intellectualization, etc—and useful ways to live with challenging impulses and energies.
