Too young and immature w faulty defense mech

Interesting article and premise.

The problem I see off the bat with it is college students are still adolescents developing their coping mech and defense mech. Many don't have the mature insight and are utilizing immature defense mechanisms such as projective identification projection splitting, denial etc that are unconscious.

Also This is the age where many biological illnesses start to emerge such as schizophrenia, OCD Bipolar.. I don't think this is really helpful in those cases...
