This training title demonstrates Coping Mechanisms and Defenses: Splitting. Splitting is a primitive defense. Negative and positive impulses are split off into polar opposites rather than being integrated into complex thinking. The defended individual segregates experiences into all-good and all-bad categories, with no room for ambiguity and ambivalence. When "splitting" is combined with "projecting", the negative qualities that people unconsciously perceive themselves as possessing, may be attributed to others.
