Defense Mechanisms- Friends

Perhaps a little displacement going on as Mr. Stephens (Bruce Willis) substitutes his dad’s hugs for hugs from Joey and Chandler.

Defense Mechanisms- Friends

In this clip we get several defense mechanisms.  Rationalization from Chandler, a tiny bit of intellectualization from Rachel, then some rationalization from both of them, and a little regression from both too!  Since Friends hit Netflix, many of my students are familiar with the show which makes it more fun!

Defense Mechanisms- Anchor Man

Jack Black’s character is angry at Will Farrel’s Ron Burgundy.  Black’s character displaces his anger onto Burgundy’s beloved pet, Baxter, by tossing the dog into the water.  While displacement doesn’t  occur consciously, this could be an adequate clip.

Cognitive Maps–Seinfeld

Had Kramer paid more attention to his surroundings prior to being kicked out, he wouldn’t need Jerry to try to visualize where Kramer was by Kramer describing landmarks.  How many times have you been lost and someone asks you to describe where you are and then they are able to describe for you how to get home, using a cognitive map?

Memory- Andy Griffith Show

I love so many things about this clip from the Andy Griffith Show.  First, I love the Andy Griffith Show.  Second, most of our students will not have any frame of reference for this.  Third, it takes me back to happy childhood times watching TV with my grandparents.

Barney tries to show Andy how much he remembers from elementary school, except, well, in true Barney fashion, he makes a mess of it.  Use this to discuss types of recall 🙂

Learning-The Colbert Report

http://thecolbertreport.cc.com/videos/jz3rdd/pavlok-fitness-band

Stephen Colbert gives a hilarious description of the Pavlok activity tracker that shocks you for not being active, posts to your Facebook account when you don’t go to the gym and deducts $ from your bank account when you don’t reach your goals.  So many learning concepts in a 5 minute clip!

Note to teachers: Might want to prime it past the beer ad that seems to be set at the beginning!
