Examples of Repression?

Answer

Repression is pyschological in nature and refers to the attempt to repel one's own desires and feelings. Examples of repression include placing an uncomfortable or dangerous memory in a relatively inaccessible area of the subconscious mind. Repression doesn't make the memories fully disappear, but it does continue to influence actions, behaviors, or feelings as the person grows up. An example of this type of repression often occurs when a small child is abused by a parent, quasi-parental figure, or teacher. Because it is not safe to challenge the parent or teacher, the child represses what has happend.
