BITESIZE: Psychological Defence Mechanisms: Mike Brearley

The Life Lessons podcast has a simple mission: to have discussions that reveal something important about life and how best to live it. My guests range from the biggest sporting names on the planet, as well as neuroscientists, world-renowned philosophers, and psychologists – right through to Buddhist monks.

We all have psychological defence mechanisms - including the often deep-seated pattern of projection. Mike Brearle - one of the greatest sporting leaders of all-time turned psychoanalyst - explains what it is, why we do it and shares some rather well-known examples.
