Defense Mechanisms – Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Principles – @LevelUpRN
- Mark McGraw
Cathy Parkes BSN, RN, CWCN, PHN covers Defense Mechanisms. The Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Principles video tutorial series is intended to help RN and PN nursing students study for your nursing school exams, including the ATI, HESI and NCLEX.
In this video, Cathy reviews defense mechanisms, including: avoidance, compensation, conversion, denial, displacement, dissociation, identification, intellectualization, projection, rationalization, reaction formation, regression, repression, splitting, sublimation, suppression, and undoing. At the end, Cathy gives you a quiz to see if you can “name that defense mechanism”.

👩⚕️ HI I’M CATHY PARKES 👩⚕️
I’m here to help you Level Up! During my time at CSUSM’s Accelerated Bachelor’s of Nursing program, I helped my fellow classmates who were struggling with the exam, pass and graduate. After receiving my BSN I went on to become an RN at Scripps Encinitas Hospital. As more and more students reached out to me for help, I decided to start this channel to help people across the world, LEVEL UP.
