Repression (English)

What is Repression?

Repression is an ego defense mechanism that is responsible for maintaining contents, desires and impulses, that may be unpleasant or distressing outside consciousness.

There are two types of repression: one as a reference to the contents that are expelled from consciousness into the unconscious, and other one referred to the unconscious contents that are struggling out of consciousness and are denied access to it.
