We begin tonight's narrative with a discussion of the documentary "Gasland" which details how the modern extraction of natural gas is destroying huge amounts of the planet's fresh water supply and adding to the problem of greenhouse gasses and climate change. Evidence is presented that the energy companies, the politicians and large segments of the public continue to deny the clear and present danger of despoiling our land, air and water. Psychology has also little to say about this mass denial of what is in front of us as it continues to focus of problem of the individual and sometimes the family. We will discuss this problem beginning with Becker's two masterpieces (now denied and forgotten) "The Denial of Death" and "Escape from Evil."
Psychological denial is a defense mechanism that is used by everyone at different times in their life to cope with an unacceptable reality. It becomes pathological when it persists for more than a brief time. Denial can either allows the user to come to grips with the pain by temporarily modulating it; or it can usher the user into fantasyland. Tonight We shall present some recent examples of the fantasyland variety:
Denial is a defense mechanism that allows a person – despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary – to deny that something is true, when in fact, it is true. It is one of the most powerful and difficult problems that Alcoholics and Drug Addicts face before, during, AND after treatment, because it is always the thinking that precedes the act of picking up a drink or a drug.
If you have a drinking problem, you may deny it by:
Drastically underestimating how much you drink Downplaying the negative consequences of your drinking Complaining that family and friends are exaggerating the problem Blaming your drinking or drinking-related problems on othersIf any of these symptoms sound familiar to you, or someone you love, or if you're struggling with drinking, please listen to this informative and important show.
Earlier this week, the documentary "A League of Denial" aired on PBS. The much awaited & controversial report sparked quite a bit of conversation via social media as fans, players (current & former), and media types all cited many of the shocking findings and statistics that were shared.
Former NFL Offensive Lineman & co-host of "First and Life" Steve Hoyem joins us today to share his thoughts on the documentary, playing with injuries, and the $785 million settlement between the NFL & retired players.
