Psychodynamic Perspective: emphasizes systematic study of the psychological forces that underlie human behavior, feelings, and emotions and how they might relate to early experience.
Sublimation:satisfying and impulse with a substitute object in a socially acceptable way.
Me playing basketball is an example of this because it gets all my aggression out in a mannered way.
Repression: mental process by which distressing thoughts, memories, or impulses that may give rise to anxiety are excluded from consciousness and left to operate in the unconscious
Looking back at old photos with my grandmother after she passed makes me miss her more because of all the happy times we had.
Projection: humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.
This shows projection because I'm helping out my team and making good decisions on wheather on to make the right move.

Social cognitive perspective: used in psychology, education, and communication, holds that portions of an individual's knowledge acquisition can be directly related to observing others within the context of social interactions, experiences, and outside media influences.
Basketball is the type of environment that I like to be in and makes me feel better about myself when I'm playing the game I love.
Being around my friends gets me in a good mode and they make me very happy.
Family is a big part of my life, so when I'm with my family everything seems so much better even when things aren't going so good.
Locus of control: conceptualized as either internal, those people who believe they can control their life, or external, meaning they believe their decisions and life are controlled by environmental factors which they cannot influence, or that chance or fate
After getting hurt I believe that fate with decided wheather or not I should continue playing and it will take time.
I also believe that the friend I have, they will continue to be my friends as long as I have the chance to.
Last year I stopped playing softball because I felt like it wasn't the right choice for me and that I should find something else to do.
