Defense Mechanisms in Kids and Adults

temp-post-image

Defense mechanisms, or how we handle tough situations in the moment, start early. Children may suck their thumb or throw a tantrum. Sometimes we learn from our parents and how they handle conflict, anxiety, etc. Then, we usually carry those mechanisms into adulthood. Some people may react automatically with anger while others shy away from conflict entirely. Read this article to learn more about how defense mechanisms work and how therapists can help! How do you react when in stressful situations?
