A. Mechelle Haywood, Psy.D., offers alternative strategies for dealing with discomfort and distress.
Defense mechanisms are behaviors we use to distance ourselves from unpleasant thoughts, events and actions. They can help protect us from stress and provide an outlet for difficult emotions.

Mechelle Haywood, Psy.D., explores how defense mechanisms impact our emotional and psychological health and offers alternative strategies for dealing with discomfort and distress.
