Repression vs regressionWatch
Hey, any psychology student or people who know the difference between repression and regression (plus if you can give an example) please let me know. I’m getting a bit confused ;”) (I don’t take psychology)
Repression is where certain things are pushed down or hidden to stop them from coming out such as thoughts/memories/feelings.
Regression is where the mind goes back to an earlier state such as childhood rather than deal with the current state-this could be permanent or temporary due to trauma or conflict.
