Psycho-ecologic aspects of defense mechanisms


, : Psycho-ecologic aspects of defense mechanisms. Zeitschrift für Psychosomatische Medizin und Psychoanalyse 38(3): 281-293

Classical defense mechanisms are used not only intraindividually to strengthen a threatened ego-Organization, but also between individuals to stabilise endangered social relationships. According to a psychoecological way of thinking, any person has an existential need of productive, ongoing, mutual exchange in his or her social niches, in particular in those situations in which the inner equilibrium is threatened. Social relationships are used to support the threatened person in the use of classical defense mechanisms. People close to the individual have an important influence on reinforcing or weakening of the intrapersonal defenses, and therapists have to learn to take this into account.

In this paper, we report assembly of the novel dioxabicyclo(3.2.1)octane subtarget (-)-2, comprising the signature structural element of the potent antibiotic (+)-sorangicin A (1). The synthesis was achieved in 15 steps (1.5% overall yield) via a...

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the acute and chronic effect of smoking on left ventricular function in healthy heavy smokers by conventional Doppler flow, tissue Doppler, and two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE). Ec...

Potassium antimonate was used to precipitate calcium in the cochlea of the guinea-pig. The distribution of the calcium antimonate precipitates was analysed by electron microscopy. The precipitate density was determined in different cell types in t...
