object constancy and the psychology of protective spirits and persecutory delusions

December 11th, 2019 · Comments

Object constancy is not just the ability to believe that core relationships are stable despite conflicts, but also the ability to internalize the soothing attributes of a secure attachment figure. In this talk will discuss how the mind can create agents as compensations during times of isolation and loneliness; we'll employ the early Buddhist practice of devanusati, or conjuring the felt sense of protective entities.
