1997NEUROTIC BEHAVIOR: A PSYCHODYNAMIC VIEWNEUROTIC BEHAVIOR: A PSYCHODYNAMIC VIEW1973color19 min16mm Through alternating animation and flashbacks, this film portrays, describes and analyzes the successive stages and defense mechanisms of a 19-year-old college student whose ``neurotic'' behavior is linked to anxiety from without and childhood memories from within. Based on the depth psychology of Freud, behavior is shown to be the interplay between dynamic mental forces, both unconscious and conscious. Concludes by suggesting that through awareness of defense mechanisms their constricting impact on a persons' life can be lessened.
