Making Friends with Defenses in Action @ Zagreb, Croatia

TSM is a research-supported system of experiential change rooted in the theories of interpersonal neurobiology, and experiential therapy. It modifies the concepts and techniques of classical psychodrama for clinical safety and effectiveness for use with those with a history of trauma.

In this workshop, we focus on the defenses people use at the time of trauma to protect themselves to ensure survival, which then become part of the trauma-survivor’s role repertoire into adulthood. Categories of defenses include: Survival, obsessions, compulsions, addictions and eating disorders, as well as those that are simply maladaptive, but deeply rooted. While they worked initially, we see how they can become pathological when they are no longer needed and do not support growth—i.e., true spontaneity and creativity.

The TSM clinical action intervention of the Manger of Defenses (MD) is taught as a two-part structure in which any defense can be concretized through enactment or with the use of objects to represent it.  When the MD is established it determines when and if a defense is needed, thus ensuring that old defenses can evolve into healthy psychological protection in the here and now.

Participants learn:

An overview of defense mechanisms that develop following trauma: Survival, obsessions, compulsions, addictions and eating disorders, as well as maladaptive coping skills.

The TSM clinical action intervention of the MD and how to use it in clinical situations and adapt its use to other settings.

To identify their personal defenses that are used most frequently and how to transform them into higher order coping skills.
