This video provides some of the psychological problems associated with the Troubles. Ed Cairns starts off with listing and explaining a few Freudian theories associated with the NI conflict. Then he talks about some associated myths with psychology, which then leads to the social identity theory which he spends a good deal of time talking about. At the very end, he opens the floor up to questions and fields a few before the tape ends.
