Psychoanalytic Lunch & Learn: Defense mechanisms explained

December 6, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The Sue Fairbanks Psychoanalytic Research Collaboration presents

Defense mechanisms explained

We’ve all heard of “denial”…and it’s definitely not a river in Egypt!  In this session, we will dive deeply into these dark waters, hopefully shining a light on how a number of common defenses both protect and harm their owners.

A light lunch will be served. Free CEUs provided. Registration opens November 6 (session limited to 30 people).

The Psychoanalytic Lunch & Learn sessions seek to introduce psychoanalytic concepts to community practitioners, researchers, social work students, social workers and those in all helping professions. These sessions are sponsored by the Fairbanks Psychoanalytic Research Collaboration, a program at the Texas Institute for Child & Family Wellbeing.
