I am back to this which is a sub set of Change, Loss and Grief. Loss is denied, invalidated and often repressed. As I read Ernest Becker there seems to be more evidence that it is what we do best, deny and invalidate or distract ourselves with meaningless tasks. The anxiety is too great. We do not like the pain physical or emotional and more so the fact that we are weak and error prone. Loss and bad events happen to everyone else not ‘me’.
The deeper dive for me is how is psychoanalysis connected to change, loss and grief in the workplace?
What happens psychologically unconsciously when a business experiences a change?
How much hidden emotional residue is left over?
