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. You must RSVP to attend. A light lunch and CEUs will be provided
