coping mechanism from stress:

DISPLACEMENT- -------------Your boss shouts at you, you shout at your subordinate. SUBLIMATION - ---------------putting anger into something more productive or + putting all energies into schooling Ex. Angry at life, pour anger in singing. DENIAL----------------------“I am not” an alcoholic! DISSOCIATION – --------------psychological flight from self. Amnesia. Ex. Rape, trauma REGRESSION – ----------------RETURN to an earlier developmental stage FIXATION – ---------------------stuck in a stage of development REPRESSION – -----------------unconscious forgetting SUPPRESSION – ---------------conscious forgetting. Avoidance. “I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to remember it.” RATIONALIZATION – -------uses “because”. Has illogical reasoning. “I drink because I don’t want to waste the beer in the ref.” REACTION FORMATION----plastic. Doing opposite of intention. UNDOING----------------------show true feeling/color then feels guilty after. IDENTIFICATION – -----------models a certain behavior from a certain role model. PROJECTION – -----------------blame other people, pass load to others. Looks for a scapegoat. “Not me, but them.” INTROJECTION – --------------assume another persons trait as your own. “Not just you, me too.” “Ako din, gusto ko yan.” CONVERSION – repression. Anger turned inward to herself. Converted to physical symptoms. Sensory-numbness. Motor-paralyzed, tremors. COMPENSATION – -----------defects of the person, overachieve to cover a defective part. SUBSTITUTION – -----------when you replace a difficult role with a more accessible one. Ex.Wants to go to Disneyland but can’t afford it. Went to Enchanted Kingdom instead.

EXAMS: Nsg intervention: Look for words like:


=safety, support, stay, set limits, assist Provide safety. Mobilize support system. I will stay with you. Assist in activity. Set limit- don’t allow patient to misbehave.
